Daikundi province of Afghanistan to have its largest food storage

Local authorities of Daikundi province announced the establishment of the largest food storage in the province.

The storage, costing 20 million Afs, is funded by the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock.

The storage is built on one acre of land and has a capacity of 5,000 tons of food, according to Mahdi Mohadi , Daikundi’s provincial head of agriculture.

Meanwhile, Daikundi Governor Qurban Ali Uruzgani expressed his satisfaction about the construction and operation of the storage.

“In 1389, when Daikundi province was hit with severe floods, people were faced with many difficulties. Most of the aid from the government and foreign organizations would not be properly distributed to the people in need and would go to waste due to lack of a proper storage,” said Mr. Uruzgani.

Most residents of the province are engaged in agriculture and livestock and earn their income in this way.

Last year, devastating floods caused damage to a large number of farmers and resulted in a mass migration to other cities.
