Second food distribution project completed this year

Since the political upheaval last August, Afghanistan has been in a state of food crisis. The invasion of Ukraine has also caused food prices to rise even higher, putting people in an increasingly difficult situation. Facing this situation, on June 19, the second food distribution project of the year was completed. We were able to deliver two months' worth of food packages to a total of 1,200 households in particularly vulnerable situations living in Nangarhar Province, located on the border with Pakistan. The United Nations warned that 22.8 million people, which equals to more than half of the population, would face severe hunger and that humanitarian needs would expand to record levels. In addition, 3.2 million children, which equals to half of all children under the age of five, are said to be at risk of acute undernutrition by the end of the year. In this situation, identifying 1,200 particularly vulnerable households was a difficult task. We established standards for the project, such as households with pregnant or lactating women and households headed by women, and proceeded the project in close coordination with other support organizations operating in the area.


Shortly after the project was completed, a strong earthquake struck southeastern Afghanistan in the early morning of June 22.

The number of victims reportedly already exceeds 1,000. In order to support the people affected by this earthquake, JEN is in the area and has begun surveying the situation. We will report as soon as we receive more information. We would appreciate your support.


We actually visited the home to check the situation.
