Emergency appeal COVID-19, Kabul and Herat

Emergency appeal COVID-19, Kabul and Herat

In March 2020 – in response to the global emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Action for Development launched an emergency appeal to raise funds in order to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19 in Afghanistan.

AfD established a connection with a network of about 80 volunteers across the country (including nurses, school teachers, school graduates and university students, community leaders, etc.) that supported AfD in raising awareness among the population on the coronavirus and how to prevent infection, particularly through hygiene and self-isolation measures. 

In April 2020, we printed and distributed about 500 flyers via a network of youth groups and religious leaders in the Provinces of Kapisa, Parwan and Kabul. As the lockdown measures eased in June, AfD re-opened its regular activities, including our school for street-working children and the health clinic, both located in Kabul. The funding from the emergency appeal also contributed to printing guidelines and information leaflets to be displayed at the school and the clinic's premises, as well as ditributing masks and hand disinfectant in order to guarantee the safety of our staff and our beneficiaries.

AfD would like to thank our donors, supporters and friends, who contributed to this project and extend our gratitude to those who will continue to support us through their generous donations. Every donation counts in making sure we can support the most vulnerable communities of Afghanistan.

Warm regards,

The Team at AfD
