IBC has been working in Afghanistan since the beginning of the crisis and has been responding to urgent humanitarian needs on the ground. IBC has been operational in Kabul, Kunduz, Herat, Mazar-i Sharif, etc and provides humanitarian relief to those most in need and has developed a well-established presence in the region. IBC field teams in Afghanistan can access remote locations safely with the acceptance of the local community and in coordination with other actors working in the field.  

IBC’s strong ties in Afghanistan, eases the implementation process of the project to meet beneficiaries with their needs. Within the scope of the project, procured food parcels, distributed to the ones in need in Kunduz, and mezar i sharif. The project empowered the nutritional capacity. A total of 1700 families and more than 9.000 direct beneficiaries have now been reached through this project. 

The project empowered the nutritional capacity of the female led families and ease the burden of needs for the ones in need in Afghanistan. They are now able to secure their nutritional needs– mainly women and children.

Food Packages for One Month include following items: 1.10 kg basmati rice    2.10 kg Kazakh wheatflour 3.1.5 lt edible oil 4.5 kg    pulses   national or Uzbek origin5.1 kg green tea 6.2 kg milk powder 7.1 kg salt. 

The project empowered the nutritional capacity. A total of 1700 families and more than 9.000 direct beneficiaries have now been reached through this project. This Project covered needs of many people but there are other vulnerable people who are waiting for help. Thus, implementing additional projects that cover IDP families’ food needs are prominent. 

 

Case Study: 

Leyla lives with her four children under very difficult conditions in a rented house with only one room in the Noshad neighborhood in the tomb.

Leyla's husband was a soldier. She lost her life in the war 2 years ago. Their houses in the village were destroyed during the war. Leyla, who was homeless, derelict and widowed, had to move to the city with her orphaned children when she could not provide a source of income to survive and work in the village.

While his sons, Mustafa and Inspiration, should have been busy with school, now he is looking after his mother and sisters, sometimes selling pens and sometimes water, in order to find money on the streets of the city.

Leyla is very worried about the future of her children because they are very tired and cannot go to school. She says that she cannot feed all her children, especially her little daughter, well.

Saying that there is no sink and kitchen in her house, she lives under difficult conditions in only one room, she wants her children to go to school and grow up as individuals who will serve the community in the future.

This project focuses to provide 1,500 families (approximately 9,000 individuals) with food packages and winterisation kits in in Kunduz, Herat, and Kabul. International Blue Crescent (IBC) aimed to distribute food parcels as well as winterisation kits to those seeking safety in these three provinces. Food packages are composed of: 5kg rice, 5kg wheat flour, 1.5L edible oil, 5kg pulses, 1kg green tea, 2kg milk powder, 1kg salt. Winterisation kits are composed of: 2 blankets, 6 coats, 6 jumpers, 6 pairs of socks, 6 neck scarves and 6 pairs of boots. Through this project, nutritional needs and winterization needs are covered for a period of one month in Kunduz, Kabul, and Herat. In addition to nutritional needs, by distributing non-food items (NFI) kits, the project also helped the IDP families. The project enables the families to have enough food to survive for one month. Thus, its activities positively contributed to the lives of beneficiaries.

The GlobalGiving Community has generously contributed $21,096 toward our efforts in Afghanistan since the launch of our winterization campaign for Giving Tuesday in November 2021, resulting in 1-month food parcels and winterization packs for approximately 328 families. Our team on the ground spoke with many families, children and young men especially who are experiencing extreme hardship as schools were closed for a while, there are no jobs due to the collapse of the economy, and prices have soared as basic items especially food become less and less available. 

Thanks to combined assistance from the GlobalGiving community and complimented by other international partnerships and in the field, IBC has delivered humanitarian aid to 3,000 families overall in Afghanistan in the last 6 months. The IBC Cross-Border Projects team, which recently delivered 6 tons of humanitarian aid to the Afghan Red Crescent with Afghan Ariana Airlines, aims to deliver food aid to 120,000 families in the coming days. President of the Afghan Red Crescent, Hafez, thanked IBC and expressed that they were happy to be able to deliver these aid to the people in need. With the team led by Recep Levent Ozturk, IBC is continuing emergency food aid programs in the provinces of Gardiz and Herat, as well as in Mezar-i Serif and Kunduz. 

We are thrilled about the awareness and impact the GG community has had for the people we have met on the ground who are very grateful to have warmer clothes and less hunger to help them through this harsh winter. We see many repeat donors and hope they will follow our next campaigns for Ramadan here on GlobalGiving. You may check our additional links to learn more about our cooperation and impact on the ground for this campaign and beneficiary lists may be provided upon request to the GlobalGiving team.

We thank this community for your continued support to the most vulnerable families still making it through the harshest conditions in Afghanistan.
