May 2009 Update

After recent heavy rains, the west side of Herat City experienced flooding where some Afghans lost their homes. After the flooding, community leaders came to AIL asking for support for the displaced people. The leaders told AIL that these people were suffering from a lack of food and housing. Sixty-six families (approximately 370 people) affected by the flooding were each given a bag of rice which can feed a family for at least 20 days.
