our humanitarian responses to your charitable donations
Emergency Food Distribution
One of the imminent issues impacting Afghanistan is food scarcity. Millions of people across Afghanistan are at the brink of starvation. They do not have enough food to eat. Based on WFP, 22.5 million people in Afghanistan face acute food insecurity, and 8.7 million Afghans are in need emergency food support.
Lack of nutritious and whole food has unprecedented effect on various members of the Afghan society especially children, pregnant women, and elders. It causes debilitating sicknesses and has severe effects on education, social, and economic development of the country. As a result, food insecurity is one of the prominent humanitarian campaigns that HBT works to support.
Therefore, we have launched several emergency food distributions in the different provinces of Afghanistan. More than 30,000 food packages have been distributed for needy families. However, food insecurity continues to impact millions in Afghanistan, and we need your help to save people from starvation. Together we can save lives.
Establishing wells for clean water
According to UNICIF reports, 93% of children lack access to clean water and around 94% of schools across Afghanistan lack access to basic hand washing facilities. Clean water shortages has been a serious issue for the Afghan people. Children are forced to deliver water from long distances to their homes and the quality has had deleterious impact on their health. In addition, in mountainous regions, communities lack access to excavate wells for clean water, and they must undertake long journeys to obtain it.
HBT Organization has started a clean water source project for the people who lack access to clean water. According our latest emergency response, we have started to excavate 30 wells in Paktika province. Each well will provide clean water for almost 200 families. Altogether, 6000 families will have access to clean water in Paktika province. With your support, we have plan to extend this project to other provinces.
Emergency Medical Support
Health problems are plaguing the Afghan population. After the collapse of previous Afghan government, most of the organizations and donor countries have limited their aid support. This, in turn, has led to acute shortages of medicine and doctors in hospitals, particularly in rural areas. The afghan population, at present, are in dire need of medical support and supplies.
HBT has taken critical measures in providing humanitarian assistance to the various provinces of Afghanistan. Recently, we provided more than 3 tons of medical supplies including different types of drugs, first aid kits, and injections and many more medical items to the Paktika people who are rebuilding their lives after a deadly earthquake.
We have also established a temporary health clinic, where we provide medical services for people of Paktika province. Furthermore, we have hired doctors provide free medical examinations. As a result, between 120 to 150 patients are visiting the clinic daily.
Emergency winter kit Drive
Our emergency winter kit program provides children and people in need with warm clothes. Through this program, we provide various warm clothing items to people in need in the rural areas of Afghanistan. Our teams investigate and discover the most eligible people and provide them with warm emergency clothing.
Afghanistan is one of the countries which has harsh winters, and majority of the people are poor and do not have access to proper warm clothes. There is extensive snowfall in the mountainous region, and many villages are isolated from their provinces. The temperature reaches to even -25⁰C, and in some higher mountainous locations, it is even lower. Therefore, HBT is obliged to provide emergency winter kits for needy people all over Afghanistan. Our emergency kit includes a warm blanket, scarf, jumper, jacket, winter soak, and shoes.
You can also take part and help the people of Afghanistan in emergency situations. According to a report by UNOCHA, 79 % of Afghans live in shelters that need repair and do not have enough access to heating. As a result, they need warm clothing to keep themselves warmer. Together we can save Afghan people from the harsh realities of this upcoming winter. Join HBT and support our work.
