Report on Afghanistan’s humanitarian crisis covering from 2015 to Present: facts and figures
The humanitarian impact of the Afghan crisis remain somewhat the same due to the long war and seasonal disasters: While disasters are less common, conflicts however between government and other forces are more common. Moreover, about 50,000 Afghan refugees have left neighbouring countries creating an impact on the humanitarian need in Afghanistan this year.
Online Data Gathered from organisations working in the field
- 4.5 million people need humanitarian aid in Afghanistan
- 3.5 million have no food security
- 6 million people have fled Afghanistan
- 6.5 million children are without schooling
The people of Afghanistan need food, water, clothing, and medical attention. The ICRAA is ready to provide support to these people.
Furthermore, the people of Afghanistan are facing a war in their country for long, forced displacement and repeated natural disasters which makes sustainable development difficult despite allocations of funds by the international community.
This data helps us to take the opportunity to make good progress together in saving lives and developing Afghanistan. Unfortunately, in the past, the Afghan government exaggerated the number of children in school as shown in the graph on this page.
See the following chart which was researched online from available data from 2015 to present.
Repeated wars and the lack of opportunities are all negatives which have contributed to the poor conditions of the people leaving little progress and continued suffering for children and women.
Remembering Nancy Dupree, “Grandmother of Afghanistan”
Our supporter Nancy Dupree passed away in Kabul on September 9, 2017. Nancy supported our peace efforts in Afghanistan. Our chairman Dr Sanaulhaq Ahmadzai had a meeting with Nancy earlier this year in Kabul discussing the different ways of getting to peace. With her guidance, we were able to hold meetings with tribal leaders and different political representatives in Kabul. In her appreciation letter to ICRAA, she said “ICRAA has eased the lives of many thousands in communities across eastern Afghanistan.” Nancy will be missed very much by the Afghan people.
Projects Completed in 2015
Emergency Supply of Women’s Clothing for the war-affected Kunar province. People migrate to Nangarhar province of Afghanistan to escape civil unrest. 1,400 families benefited from this project.
Projects Completed in 2017
Our goal is to help the migrants who are returning to Afghanistan from Pakistan where they were exiled. Through this project, we will help at least 2000 families by providing them with a variety of 10 seedlings (e.g. Eucalyptus, Coleanthus trees, and different varieties of Pines and Bakain, Sempervirens). These species are selected as they are fast-growing and affordable. The families will use the trees for shade, and fire and the foliage will be used to feed their animals.
