Afghanistan – Most of our projects are interrupted, but:
The WFP project in Herat continues!
Shelter Now has been working as a partner of the UN World Food Programme (WFP) for more than 30 years. This means: WFP provides the food and we take care of the distribution. In the past, we built bakeries in refugee camps that baked bread for the families using flour from the WFP. Over the years, the working method has been refined more and more and adapted to local conditions.
In Herat, western Afghanistan, Shelter Now has been distributing food to IDPs and other vulnerable families for 3 years. Even after the Taliban took power, this project will continue. Albeit under difficult circumstances.
If our colleagues can complete the planned distribution campaigns by the end of the year despite very great difficulties, 353,948 people will have enough to eat for 3 months.
If you would like to contribute to this project with a donation, the project number is: 6000 HRT 87
More good news: A few days ago, we were also able to reopen our centre for the deaf in Kabul. For the girls too. Basically, the new rulers want us to continue our projects. And we want that too, of course!
