The Unicef on Thursday announced that it has distributed basic needs to over 1,700 families in Afghanistan's western province of Herat.

"To keep children and women warm and meet their basic needs during this harsh winter Unicef Afghanistan distributed 5,000 blankets, 1,700 tarpaulin and 1,700 buckets to 1,700 most vulnerable families in Herat Province," the UN agency said on Twitter.
