IBC, OVER 20 TONS OF FOOD AND WITH WINTER KITS, REACHED 25000 PEOPLE IN AFGHANISTAN


More than half of Afghanistan's population is struggling with hunger and harsh winter conditions.

In the last 6 months, IBC provided more than 20 tons of food to approximately 5000 families, while winter clothing and blankets were delivered to 25,000 people, 15,000 of which were children. In Ramadan, it continues its efforts to distribute Ramadan packages and hygiene kits to 3000 families.

IBC continues its uninterrupted support to the people of Afghanistan in this process. The uncertainty that started after the Taliban took over the capital Kabul on August 15, and the collapse of the economic infrastructure with the loss of foreign support triggered a major humanitarian crisis. According to the latest data, 22 million people living in the country don’t have access to safe food.

IBC has reached 5000 families with its humanitarian relief efforts initiated at the end of August. Later on, within the framework of the emergency aid program aiming at regular food aid and supply of winter supplies, it delivered more than 20 tons of food supplies and winter material packages consisting of jackets, sweaters, coats, socks, and blankets to more than 25,000 people.

Humanitarian relief efforts, which started in Kunduz, Mazar-i-Sharif, and Kabul, were continued in Herat, Ghazni, and Meydan Wardak provinces in cooperation with the Afghan Red Crescent, while food and winter supplies were delivered to 750 families living in Kunduz and Mazar-i-Sharif.

IBC International Projects Director Levent Recep Öztürk, who has been coordinating the aid efforts in the region for two months and said, "We are happy to be able to put a smile on the face of Afghanistan, which is facing one of the biggest humanitarian crises in the world," and stated that they will deliver Ramadan food parcels and hygiene kits to 3000 more families with the relief program they have planned in Ramadan.
