Bayat Foundation continued to distribute much-needed winter aid to desperate families – this time to those in PD6 in the western part of Kabul.

Hundreds of families were given food packages that included flour, rice and oil.

Haji Mohammad Ismail, deputy head of Bayat Foundation, said that these donations will continue in other provinces until the end of winter.

“Every year, Bayat Foundation has its winter aid program and has helped during earthquakes and floods those in need,” said Haji Mohammad Ismail.

“This year, fortunately, we started our winter aid program from the center, Inshallah we will distribute it to other provinces as well. Today, we came to the west of Kabul and distributed flour, oil and rice to a number of deserving people,” he said.

The needy who have benefited from this aid are happy and want this process to be continued for them in the future.

Meanwhile, a number of needy people are still asking other aid organizations to help them in this difficult situation, like the Bayad Foundation.

“We have many problems and we need to be helped,” said a recipient said.

“We ask other businessmen to provide us with this help, it is winter and people are unemployed,” another recipient said.

Since its establishment, Bayat Foundation has played an important role in the reconstruction of a number of government institutions, especially the health sector, in addition to helping the needy.

Foundation officials said they hope to be able to continue distributing aid to desperate families in Kabul and around the country through winter.

Bayat Foundation launched its annual program on Wednesday in western Kabul, where dozens of needy families received the same food parcels.

This aid is critical to countless Afghan families who are not only dealing with a crippled economy and severe hunger but also with an abnormally cold winter – which, according to Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) officials, has claimed the lives of over 70 people in the past two weeks.

The United States understands the importance of Chabahar Port for continued humanitarian supplies to Afghanistan and to provide the country economic alternatives, India’s foreign ministry said on Friday.

 India recently signed a 10-year agreement to develop and operate Iran’s strategic Chabahar Port as New Delhi aims to boost trade ties with landlocked Afghanistan and Central Asian countries, bypassing ports in its western neighbour and arch foe Pakistan.

But the deal has prompted a thinly veiled threat of sanctions from the United States, with whom India has developed close economic and military ties in recent decades.

India’s foreign ministry spokesman, Randhir Jaiswal, noted that since 2018, India has supplied 85,000 metric tons of wheat, 200 metric tons of pulses and 40,000 litres of pesticide Malathion to Afghanistan through Chabahar Port.

“The United States also has an understanding…understands the importance of Chabahar Port for continued humanitarian supplies to Afghanistan and to provide Afghanistan economic alternatives,” he said in a press conference.

“Our External Affairs Minister also spoke on this matter in several forums recently, where he said that we should not take a narrow view of this particular project, it has an important role to play as far as the region is concerned, connectivity is concerned, particularly for the landlocked countries in the area,” he added.

He also said that Russia‘s special envoy to Afghanistan, Zamir Kabulov, met with an Indian delegation led by Joint Secretary, J.P. Singh, who looks after Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, in the Ministry of External Affairs, essentially exchange of views on the ground and the situation and how the two countries look at the situation.

He said that they emphasized on the need to provide development assistance and humanitarian support to the people of Afghanistan.

Iran’s special representative for Afghanistan, Hassan Kazemi Qomi, said in a meeting with his Italian counterpart that the next UN-convened meeting on Afghanistan should reflect the realities of the country.

Qomi said that Tehran is ready to work with Europe on the development of a comprehensive cooperation plan for Afghanistan based on the consultations it has conducted.

He added that the topics of the third meeting of special envoys on Afghanistan in Doha should be based on the realities of the region and Afghanistan.

“The actions of countries outside the region have not been useful in solving the crisis and challenges of Afghanistan so far, and if this situation continues, Europe will also be plagued by the problems,” he said.

The last meeting of the United Nations on Afghanistan was held in Doha in February this year, but it failed to achieve its primary objectives.
