The recent crisis in Afghanistan has forced many people to move out of their country, with over 5 million Afghans displaced in the country and across borders. (Source: https://www.unhcr.org/)
Considering the crisis, India has introduced ‘e-visa’ for Afghan nationals, with a validity of six months, to fast-track their applications for entry into the country.
Aga Khan Agency for Habitat India (AKAHI) is working closely with United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) - the UN Refugee Agency, and community based organizations in Delhi to monitor the situation and provide intervention.
An estimated total of 1,000 families have sought refuge in Delhi and nearby cities like Lajpat Nagar, Bhogal, Noida, Greater Noida, Faridabad, etc.
What can you do to help the Afghan refugees?
As per the field level checks and interactions with local stakeholders and communities, food and basic hygiene material has emerged as the immediate relief requirement.
After a careful assessment by our Research Analysts, HelpYourNGO has partnered with AKAHI to provide Emergency Relief Kit to 500 refugee families.
Each Kit costs Rs 3,130/*- and would suffice a family of 5 members for 1 month.
The Kit is designed as per the need of the beneficiaries and contains:
* including cost of packing, distribution and transportation.
Your donation will help us provide Emergency Relief Kits to 500 families.
The AKAHI team is hard at work on ground and in constant touch with the refugee families. We shall be sharing an update in the form of Reports. Thank you for your concern and goodwill for those who are struggling.
Let’s work together to help the refugees tide over the crisis.
