Afghanistan - Earthquake, update
  • DG ECHO has activated its Acute Large Emergency Response Tool (ALERT) mechanism to allocate EUR 1 million to respond to the most urgent needs of the earthquake affected population. Proposals on food security, wash, shelter and livelihood support are submitted by UNHCR, WFP and UNICEF (EUR 2.5 million).
  • An additional Humanitarian Air Bridge (HAB) carrying 36 tonnes of life-saving relief items (UNICEF, WHO and MSF) has been activated.
  • The situation in the affected area is complex and multi-layered, requiring a well targeted response. Pressing needs include food assistance, shelter (including winterization assistance), also WASH and trauma care.
  • The affected population is geographically scattered and remains heavily traumatized. Access to beneficiaries is difficult because of the mountainous terrain and the poor infrastructure.   
  • Women are at  risk of not being appropriately reached by the response. Female humanitarian workers have difficulties to reach beneficiaries, as the area is extremely conservative. There are no proper facilities for women to stay over.
  • The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA) launched an urgent appeal for USD 110 million, to assist 362,000 affected people.
