Tragedy in Open Space: Woman Succumbs to Cold Weather in Herat

Death of a woman due to the cold weather in the Herat province

Herat - Afghanistan: woman dies of cold weather

Local sources in Herat have tragically confirmed the death of a woman due to the cold weather in the Herat province.

According to witnesses speaking to Hasht-e Subh, the woman passed away on Wednesday, October 17th, in Taraqi Park, Herat. Originally from the Karukh district, she lived in the open space of Taraqi Park with her family, driven by fear of potential earthquakes.

Sources reveal that the family was grappling with severe economic hardships, and the woman lost her life due to a lack of proper shelter and warm clothing.

Taraqi Park in Herat is situated approximately 400 meters away from the provincial government building, currently under the administration of the Taliban.

It is worth noting that despite substantial financial aid being pledged to earthquake victims in Herat, most affected individuals have yet to receive assistance. Presently, hundreds of families, including children, endure harsh conditions, spending their nights under small tents in the open space.
