Helping Displaced Families

Recent Developments in Afghanistan

Afghanistan has been stunned by recent developments and people are adapting as best they can, to a new situation which remains both unclear and uncertain as to the future.  AIL’s current priority is to provide urgently needed assistance to the thousands of displaced families who have flooded into Kabul and Herat. Our clinics have expanded their capacity to cope with the large numbers of refugees that are in the area. We face increasing treatments for malnutrition. Food insecurity has been a problem all year, the drought that hit Afghanistan impacted the entire country. Instability and the limits on port access and trade routes means food that comes in is very expensive. Child malnutrition is increasing. We can treat this, but the only solution is more food. We must have access to more foods to distribute to families that come showing the effects of starvation.

We have been touched by the outreach of support and outpouring of donations to help the Afghan people. We thank you for standing by Afghanistan as it faces another humanitarian crisis on top of Covid-19 and drought.

Clinics update so far in 2021

Our clinics are operating in very difficult circumstances and continue to provide vital healthcare both treatment and preventative as well as reproductive health care to poor Afghan women. The clinics have been inundated in recent weeks with refugees fleeing the violence of the civil war in the country.

In the first half of the year, the clinics have provided 110,361 treatments and health education to 74,862.  Reproductive health services were provided to 7,696 women and 342 babies were delivered at clinics.  Over 33,000 people have been vaccinated this year and over 16,000 children have been assessed for nutritional status with 873 receiving treatment for malnutrition.  The Community Health Worker program visited over 12,000 families and treated 2,539 cases of ARI and 886 cases of diarrhea. Covid-19 has restricted the health workshop program but one workshop on reproductive health was held for 35 women in Kabul.

Thank you for your support which is needed more than ever. Your donations have enabled life-saving health education and treatment for many poor Afghans.
