Challenge

There are currently 5.5 million Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Afghanistan & over 50% are facing acute malnutrition & in dire need of winter items to face the rapidly falling temperatures under a chaotic Taliban management. As of September 2021 most land borders remain closed except for passage of cargo that allows for urgent humanitarian aid to IDPs in provinces such as Herat (<15,000), Kunduz (<91,000), and Kabul (25,000). Afghans & organizations in the region are calling for help.

Solution

International Blue Crescent Relief & Development Foundation (IBC) provides food parcels & winter items for vulnerable IDPs identified by IBC Afghanistan team with the local Afghan Red Crescent & local leaders of the districts of Herat, Kunduz, & Kabul. One food parcel can feed up to 6 people for 1 month & winter items are for the season. By identifying vulnerable people with the locals, we target distribution effectively & decrease people's risk for hunger, freezing, & competition for resources.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide food parcels and winter items for 1,500 families, or, approximately 9,000 people spread out over three provinces. This directly supports their immediate needs & helps combat acute malnutrition which will alleviate pressure on the collapsed medical system & shortage of medical aid available in the country while the political leaders address these & other urgent issues such as COVID-19, life-threatening drought, economic collapse, and overall coordination challenges.
