First of all, I offer Paradise to those martyred as a result of recent tragic earthquake in different parts of the country, particularly in Paktika, wish speedy recovery to those wounded and patience to our dear countrymen especially the families of the victims.
As all our countrymen are aware of the recent natural disasters, both earthquakes and floods in different parts of the country, especially in Paktika, Khost and Nangarhar provinces, hundreds of our countrymen including women, children and aged individuals have lost their lives and sustained heavy and light injuries, hundreds of residential homes destroyed completely or partially, with the death toll is feared to rise.
With the help of the Islamic Emirate and the people, rescue teams have arrived in various parts of the country to reach out to the earthquake affected countrymen. In addition, they are there to provide and send necessary aid to the area to prevent further casualties.
After an emergency meeting held by the Islamic Emirate officials to urgently respond the earthquake-battered families, relevant agencies including the Ministry of Defense (MoD) and the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) have been tasked to provide emergency assistance and dispatch rescue teams to the area.
In order to take immediate steps to help the families affected by the earthquake, the first step is to provide 100,000 Afghanis to the family of each martyr and 50,000 Afghanis to the family of each injured person.
Although air and ground rescue teams have now arrived in the area to prevent further casualties, lack of specific equipment and facilities and heavy rains in the area have hampered rescue operations.
The earthquake-affected families and people in the area need more help and assistance as besides increasing casualties in the respective areas, thousands of our countrymen are now homeless and have no shelter as their homes have been destroyed and are now living in the open air and have various problems.
As urgent aid have been dispatched to the quake-hit families in the respective areas and aid distribution process is underway, all national and international aid agencies, humanitarian organizations, Afghan businessmen inside and outside the country, and all Afghans to join hands with Afghans and their countrymen in the current sensitive conditions and spare no aid to the incident’s victims.
The Afghan businessmen and people are asked to fulfill their Islamic and humanitarian responsibilities in this regard.
At the end, may the Almighty Allah grant Paradise to the martyrs of this great tragedy and tragic event, speedy recovery to the wounded and patience to the families of the victims of this tragedy.
