Since the previous report was published, unfortunately, situation of Afghan street children has been further deteriorated including their hygienic practices. This is the second report of this crowd-funding project. The project was registered in the unprecedented times of coronavirus and therefore, has not met its initial milestones yet. CPD would like to thank all prestigious donors again for their continuous support to the project especially in the difficult times of coronavirus and now, during the socio-political power shift in Afghanistan. We are also concerned of the future of our social empowerment programs and are regularly observing the situation. As shared in the past, our decision is to keep the project active and have the alternative of project amendment in need.
We, the team CPD, are looking forward to your generous support during these critical times. Afghans suffer extreme financial problems due to severe shortfall in economic activities and financial restrictions enforced on Afghanistan by the international community. Financial restriction and freezing reserve funds of Afghanistan have directly affected the people and contributed to nation-wide food insecurity and paralyzing public service delivery throughout the country. All these have unfortunately deprioritized social change development programs including our project aimed at improving hygiene of Afghan street children in Kabul city. As before, COVID-19 is also preventing implementation of social change programs; please refer to our past reports for details. In such a scenario, priority comes to survive the organization and the minimum level of its operations until the situation gets improved.
Taking all these challenges into account, CPD has prioritized supporting its team members and volunteers to overcome such unprecedented situation through cash aid and distribution of COVID-19 prevention kits. We will continue this intervention until the problems get solved and it is not possible without your generosity to financially supporting our cause.
