UN and NGO’s providing assistance to flood victims in west Afghanistan

In a joint effort, the United Nations provided food and non-food assistance to hundreds of vulnerable families affected by flood.

Local officials claim that the largest part of damage covered Pur Chaman district of Farah province where it is believed that six children and six women lost their lives.

Abdul Hamid Mobarez, western region director for Afghanistan National Disaster Management Authority (ANDMA), said that during the recent flooding in the West, many houses were destroyed and more than 2,000 live stocks were perished.

Mr Mobarez added that the assistance provided by United Nations and Afghan National Army (ANA) in the form of tents, heaters, blankets, food, and other essential materials, will reduce the intensity of the disaster and affected families will be able to return to their normal lives.

UN agencies such as WFP, UNICEF and UN-OCHA, and NGOs like HELP and ICRC, have played pivotal roles in recent days. Because delivering food items and non-food items to the insecure district of Pur Chaman was difficult, ANA helicopters delivered the assistance to the affected families in the area.

The United Nations managed to distribute humanitarian assistance in several districts of Herat province where rain and snowfall have also destroyed over 50 houses, affecting over 50 families.
