“It’s right the UN’s welfare organizations provide miserable and needy people with relief aid, but the aid is not permanent.
We’re praising the organization for it’s relief aid. It will be good if the organization provide employment for them,” said Mohammad Zaman, an Afghan citizen.
Shah Wali, another Afghan, says they do not only need food, but also need shelter and drinking water as well as education for their children.

They say there’s still problem in modality of distribution of relief aid to the people as most people are complaining and saying that they have not received aid so far. They are asking for transparency in distribution of the relief aid in the country.
