There is a serious lack of services and assistance for economically deprived people in rural areas of Afghanistan. Malnutrition and vulnerability to disease cause severe problems for many individuals, particularly for children and the elderly. It is critical that the need for food, clothes and shelters be met. KRC has implemented various humanitarian activities that are being conducted from community center. We have began the distribution of food rations to many needy families since March of 2003.
KRC’s future humanitarian activities in the District of Kamah:
The District of Kamah has 48 villages, KRC’s humanitarian activities are limited to only a few of those villages, in a small scale. There are additional 600 families and a number of orphans who need help with food, clothes and shelter urgently.
There is urgent need for providing nutritional food to a great number of individuals and families, specially women and children who suffer from chronic deficiency diseases.
