Poor Families Receive Winter Food Distribution

Winter is the most difficult time for the poor and needy in Afghanistan.  It is cold,  and food and fuel are scarce.  In February 2013, AIL Herat staff distributed food packets of  rice, oil, beans, and peas to many poor  families.  AIL staff estimates that each food packet they distribute provides food for as many as 10 people in a family.  With this distribution, hundreds of poor women, men and children had food for a week.   One women, whose husband is a drug addict, has nine children and is very poor;  she was so grateful for the food for her family.  

We have included a few of the pictures from the distribution in this report. 

Thank you so much for your support for this project!!
