Challenge

In late February 2015, several avalanches caused by heavy rainfall devasted the northeastern Afghanistan province of Panjshir, with at least 168 confirmed dead. With rescue personnel struggling to reach the worst affected areas, many people, including children, remain missing, and numbers are expected to rise. As most of the region has been displaced, food, medicine, and drinking water are in low supply.

Solution

BRAC Afghanistan, with extensive local emergency relief history, will provide immediate support to families in Panjshir province. Major activities will include the procurement of foodstuff and water, packaging supplies for families, transporting supplies to Panjshir province and safe storage in BRAC offices, listing of 1000 avalanche-affected families, obtaining approval of the final list by the local government agencies coordinating relief efforts, and distributing the foodstuff and water.

Long-Term Impact

BRAC Afghanistan expects to provide 1000 families with emergency foodstuff and water, which will lessen exposure to disease and reduce famine. This initiative will also help to disseminate awareness of BRAC's education, health, and capacity development programs in the country.
