Emergency Aid for Needy Afghans

Summary

Poor Afghans in Afghanistan are particularly vulnerable in times of disaster whether natural or economic. Those without jobs, food or homes face starvation in harsh winter weather or after other natural disasters or following being displaced. In May 2014 devastating landslides struck a small village in the Afghan province of Badakhshan and AIL was able to use funds from this project to help with the relief work.

Challenge

Many poor Afghans live on the edge of family disaster without a safety net in the winter. AIL is able to provide food for these people by having funds to plan ahead and buy provisions so as to be ready to respond as soon as needed. These funds were most recently put to use in responding to the landslide disaster.

Solution

Donations to this project will go towards efforts to provide aid to the most vulnerable in the case of severe weather or other disasters. AIL has a team that keeps supplies prepared and monitors weather and is alert to disasters that occur including in more remote areas.

Long-Term Impact

The aid provided will help the poor to feed their families, provide fuel for cooking fires and give other assistance as needed to help these people make it through the crisis points.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
