Hundreds of Farmers benefited from the Food Aid in Baghlan

Baghlan Agriculture and Livestock Institute in collaboration with U.S. special forces and GIZ organization distributed USD 30,000 and 256 packages of food and agricultural supplies to farmers whose wheat fields were hit hard by the recent floods in some districts of Baghlan.

Each package included 100 kg of flour, 50 kg of maize seed, 50 kg vetch seed for second season planting.

Shovels and picks were also distributed to farmers in the districts of Nahrin, Doshi, Pul-Khumri and Dahneh-Ghori , as for cleaning the dirt and mud on their fields, according to Mr. Nabi Raufi head of Agriculture and Livestock Institute in Baghlan.

Mohammad Akbar, a teacher and representative of farmers in Pul-Khumri district, appreciated the receipt of aid; however, he added that the aid is not sufficient to solve the many problems of the farmers. He called for more aid from the government.

Mr. Raufi said that the Agriculture and Livestock Institute of Baghlan has carried out a survey of the farmers and is placed at the disposal of the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock.

He hoped that the Ministry of Agriculture and the central government would respond positively to the demands of the farmers.

Residents in several Baghlan districts became victims of recently disastrous floods. The victims claim that the government has failed to fulfill their demands even after the survey results were submitted to them.
