Afghanistan stands in the middle of a profound humanitarian crisis resulting from decades of armed conflict, devastating drought, complex migration situation, and massive unemployment. Current basic, health, education, economic and employment situation in Afghanistan are disastrous.
According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Afghanistan has had the largest number of refugees of any nation in the world. At this time in point over 4 million Afghans are living in the migrant situation, either based in Afghanistan in camps as internally displaced population or in Iran or Pakistan as legal or illegal migrants.
In order to contribute to the rehabilitation of Afghanistan and to support the most vulnerable population, AHEAD has been actively working shoulder by shoulder with major multilateral humanitarian organizations and the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in the provision of humanitarian aid to the needy population.
AHEAD has actively in the past few years provided basic health and hygiene services to internally displaced people, provided winterization services to people living under tents, constructed toilets, and delivered hygienic trainings aimed at reducing malicious diseases. In addition to these, AHEAD has also been in the frontline of delivery emergency aid services by implementing numerous emergency response projects in response to floods, earthquakes, landslides, and people who have lost their houses after the civil war.
