While increasing political disturbance, seasonal conditions, and natural disasters in Afghanistan drag the country into a severe economic and humanitarian crisis, access to basic needs for the people of Afghanistan is getting harder day by day.
Afghanistan / Paktika province was shaken by a 5.9 magnitude earthquake on 22 June 2022 and where 1036 people lost their lives, was again shaken by a 5.1 magnitude earthquake.
While our emergency relief efforts for the earthquake area continue, we aim to make our basic humanitarian relief activities sustainable with the needs assessments we carry out regularly. IBC Afghanistan team completed distributions to meet basic food and hygiene needs during Eid al-Adha, with the support of the donor organization IDRF.
While the UN World Food Program (WFP) warned that the situation in Afghanistan could lead to the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, it announced that the number of people who may have problems accessing food in the coming months is almost 23 million, that is more than half of the country's population.
