In July, the AIL office in Herat distributed ten 25kg bags of rice and ten 3 liter bottles of cooking oil to ten very needy people that came to the office. Of the ten people that received food, two were disabled, four were widows and four were elderly and unwell. All of the recipients were members of very large families and due to their situation in life, unable to work to support their family.
Food in Afghanistan has more than tripled in price since last year due to a number of factors including an on-going drought and the cost of oil. Many poor families are on the verge of starvation and AIL has decided to expand its emergency food deliveries from winter time only, to a year round program.
