Invasion overshadows Ramadan in Afghan capital

Thousands of people live under very difficult and unhealthy conditions in shanty tent-camps in occupied Afghan capital Kabul.

A.A correspondent in Kabul reported that people were anxious all the time because of clashes.

Turkish charity organization (Kimse Yok Mu) has begun distributing food to 120 families every day in a refugee camp in the city center.

Families in the camp covered in mud following torrential rains lined up for hours to get food packages from Turkish officials.

Emin Calhanoglu, coordinator of Kimse Yok Mu for projects, told the A.A correspondent that, "famine and poverty are the part of people's life in Afghanistan which has been suffering from warfare for years. Women and children are affected the most. There is no sanitary in camps. And lack of infrastructure in Kabul paves the way for epidemics," he said.

"People are anxious all the time because of ongoing clashes. There are tight security measures everywhere. We are trying to make people happy during the holy month of Ramadan," Calhanoglu added.
