This follows the public appeal in May for the ongoing drought in Afghanistan. The funds raised from both appeals will be channeled towards relief and recovery of affected communities, with a focus on continuous procurement of emergency healthcare supplies and restoration of livelihoods.
Mr Benjamin William, Secretary General and CEO of SRC, said, "Afghanistan, like any country torn by internal conflict, has an overstretched health system. The country is currently facing a complex humanitarian crisis due to a combination of the conflict, the pandemic, a devastating drought, food insecurity and displacement of communities, all of which have exposed the gaps in the medical services ..... SRC is committed to working closely with the IFRC & the ARCS to provide them with resources that can help expand their outreach to communities and support critical needs of the Afghan people."
With your help, we can continue to provide much-needed health and other assistance. Please donate today.
