Immediate Response to IDPs and Returnees Crises
The main goal of TACT response is direct assistance aiming at alleviating the suffering of the most vulnerable Afghan IDPs, returnees and refugees by providing proper emergency food and non-food item assistance, health and psycho-social services (PSS) and education and protection services to selected households living in camps and host communities.
In 2021 TACT with funding from the Central Asia Institute (CAI) “Immediate Response to the IDPs Crisis in Kabul” project in response to emergency in Afghanistan is deemed to be one of the most needed intervention through which TACT in close coordination with the Directorate of Refugees and Repatriation, Directorate of Economy of Kabul province and Shelter and NFIs sub cluster of the Afghanistan Protection Cluster which is led by UNHCR, had distributed 900 aid packages to 300 IDP households, targeting mainly the most vulnerable displaced population ensuring protection and wellbeing of the most vulnerable IDPs, particularly women and children in targeted IDP camps in Kabul.
As we know that in an emergency situation, families often flee with little more than the clothes they are wearing and consequently find themselves displaced without any personal belongings. In addition to food, they urgently need certain non-food items to survive, including items for shelter (tents, plastic sheeting, blankets, sleeping mats), cooking (stoves, pots, fuel), and health and sanitation (buckets, soap, jerry cans, sanitary cloths and so forth.
