SHIBERGHAN, Afghanistan, Oct. 5 (Xinhua) -- A total of 440 families received China-donated humanitarian assistance in Shiberghan city, the capital of northern Afghanistan's Jawzjan province on Wednesday.

"Today we distribute the aid, including flour and rice, assisted by China to 440 needy families," provincial head for Disaster Management and Humanitarian Affairs Mawlawi Sarajudin Saraji told reporters before the distribution.

Thanking China for sending the assistance, the official said that the package to each family includes 25 kg of rice.

Shafa Khan, who received the package, said the assistance "could be enough for 12 to 15 days for my family."

Weeks ago, another batch of Chinese humanitarian supplies were distributed in other parts of Jawzjan province to some 400 needy families.

China also provided humanitarian assistance to the quake-affected and flood-affected people in the eastern Paktika and Khost provinces a couple of months ago.
