2022 was a very difficult year for Afghanistan.
The people of Afghanistan faced one of the fastest-growing humanitarian crises in the world in 2022.
Nearly 9 million people are displaced in the country and almost half of the population struggles to cope with hunger.
The crisis caused by the change of political power in the country, along with the floods and earthquake disasters, carried the struggle for the life of the people to an even more difficult point.
Deputy Head of Afghanistan's National Disaster Response Presidency, Sharafuddin Muslim, announced in a press release that at least 192 people have been killed and 3000 injured in the floods since the beginning of August. In the statement, it was also stated that 3100 houses in the residential areas of the country were destroyed and 20,000 houses became unusable due to severe damage.
Especially since the second half of 2022, the flood disaster caused the destruction of 1.7 million trees in the country, severe damage to 750 clean water tanks, and damage to thousands of acres of agricultural land.
International Blue Crescent Relief and Development Foundation (IBC), which has been operating in the region since 2015, continues to provide basic food support, which is the primary need of the people, with the needs assessments it has made after all these crises.
In the last weeks, food packages were distributed by the nutritional habits of the people in the province of Wardak, one of the regions most affected by the flood disaster.
With the coming of winter, people starving, deprived of shelter and warmth, are waiting for a comprehensive joint response plan from all over the world to meet their basic human needs.
