More than 150 people died in the floods caused by the heavy rains that started two days ago in Badghesh, Serpul and Cevizcan towns. The floods made great damage to the houses as well.

As soon as IHH teams were informed of the disaster, they travelled to the region to distribute the aid packages consisting of food, blanket and kitchen tools.

IHH’s Head of Central Asia Office, Şefik who was in the field said that some areas hit by the flood was inaccessible and even the Afghan government could not reach some areas. He underlined that as IHH they will make sure that they somehow deliver aid to those people.

Şefik gave brief about the content of the aid packages and said that they need the support of Turkish public to deliver more of these to the victims of the flood.

Each food hamper includes: 5 lt. cooking oil, 10 kg. rice, 1 kg. tea, 3 kg sugar. The kitchen tools kit contains 2 dinner plates, 2 soup bowls, 1 scoop and one kettle and a double bed blanket.
