The families of fallen Afghan soldiers have received apartments as part of the government’s efforts to support the families of the soldiers who have lost their lives to defend from the country’s sovereignty and security.
The Ministry of Interior (MoI) said at least 59 apartments were handed over to the families of the fallen soldiers by the Minister of Interior General Taj Mohammad Jahid.
Gen. Jahid said the government of national unity remains committed to stand with the families of the fallen soldiers and provide them with all the possible support the government has in capacity.
The apartments have been built with the financial support of the government of Italy which have been constructed in 5-storey building.
The Minister of Interior thanked the government of Italy for the support to Afghanistan, specifically in western parts of the country.
The apartments have been built in Police Township and are ready for distribution to the families of the fallen police soldiers, deputy security chief of the Ministry of Interior, Murtaza Rahimi said.
According to Rahimi, the construction of the apartments started two years ago with the financial support of Italy and the families of the soldiers will receive the apartments after going through a lottery system once the relevant provincial authorities identify the neediest families of the soldiers who lost their lives.
