Hundreds of families from widely scattered villages gathered at a succession of locations in the northern Afghan province of Balkh to receive a second installment of food aid distributed by the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Afghan Red Crescent Society on Feb. 17 and 18, 2009. The aid was necessary to tide dry land farmers through to the next successful harvest after a series of drought years and harsh winters have left many on the verge of malnutrition and dislocation.
