Your contribution is important and supports the people of Afghanistan.
The project aims at delivering as soon as possible basic food supplies to deprived families in Afghanistan. A first step is to deliver food in the Herat region, in the north western part of the country. Depending on available funds, additional regions will follow.
Numerous families living in the countryside are currently moving to the main towns of Afghanistan, looking for food and emergency help. The fastest and most efficient way of helping these families is to buy food locally and deliver it directly.
Food items include rice, flour, cooking oil, lentils and beans. A 10’000 CHF (Swiss Francs) budget is needed to help 200 families during a few weeks. Members of the Action Afghanistan association work directly with local partners to buy food items, identify the beneficiaries and organise the distribution.
Action Afghanistan can count on a network of Afghans living in contributing countries (such as Switzerland, Germany, France, …), and relies on a local network of individuals living in Afghanistan for the logistical aspects of the project. All donations are used exclusively to buy and distribute food items in Afghanistan. Other costs and expenses are taken care of by the members of the association.
