Poor Afghans in Afghanistan with no jobs, food or homes face starvation in the winter and after natural disasters or being displaced. Provide emergency packets to support families.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Millions of poor Afghans are in danger of starving during the winters or after natural disasters or displacement because of the lack of food. The situation is acute because they do not have jobs, food or homes elsewhere. The poorest Afghans have no electricity or money for fuel and food. The Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) will distribute emergency packets to poor families. $15 will buy an emergency packet for a family of four for a month.
How will this project solve this problem?
As funds come in, AIL staff will make packages of food and fuel and deliver them to the neediest families. Packages will be delivered to the poorest families in different sections of Kabul and Herat.
Potential Long Term Impact
Emergency packets will give life and hope to 10,000 poor Afghans living in Kabul and Herat so that they can continue their struggle for self sufficiency.
