WFP continues to provide emergency food assistance to floods affected families in the northern and western regions. To date, over 26,000 beneficiaries have received WFP emergency food assistance to meet their immediate food needs for one month. Flood affected provinces include Balkh, Jawzjan, Samangan, Badakhshan, Kunduz, Takhar and Hirat provinces. Furthermore, WFP has taken part in provincial government-led joint assessments and planning to establish recovery food-for-work projects to repair flood-damaged roads and irrigation canals.
