Hungerfree in Ramadan - Humanitarian Relief

Summary

For this year's humanitarian relief for Ramadan, we want to specifically address children living with disabilities. Decades of violence have left large parts of the population with disabilities due to injuries. However, they lack urgently needed support and are far too often forgotten when it comes to humanitarian aid, medical care or educational opportunities. Together we can reach 600 families with food packages so that they can go through the holy month of Ramadan free of hunger!

Challenge

Afghans with disabilities often have fewer opportunities to work, their families have to spend the little money they have on medicines and treatments and there is a lack of visibility and data to prioritize people living with disabilities. In addition, they have to repeatedly experience discrimination or violence and there is a lack of facilities, especially for children, that meet their needs. As a result, many of them receive no schooling or are kept out of the public eye altogether.

Solution

With our food packages - each contains a sack of rice, a sack of flour, two kilograms of peas, two kilograms of sugar, two kilograms of tea, two kilograms of beans and toiletries - we aim to relieve the families and their children. Beyond the distributed goods, we want to set an example and show the families - who continue to make education a priority for their children despite all adversity - and the teachers, who support them every day, that they will not be forgotten.

Long-Term Impact

On the one hand we want to ensure that 600 families will be able to go through the holy month of Ramadan free of hunger. Apart from that, we hope to contribute to the visibility of Afghan children that live with disablities. Despite the escalating political, financial and humanitarian crises in Afghanistan ever since the Taliban took power in August 2021, they are too often lost sight of.
