May 2020
November 2020

Following the outbreak of COVID-19 and consequent lockdown measures, disrupted livelihoods and reduced income coupled with chronic underlying poverty have further challenged families’ capacity to purchase essential food supplies, while food insecurity is already severe across Afghanistan. Through this 6-month project, ACTED will provide immediate life-saving food security assistance to 38,500 protracted IDPs (5,500 Households) in vulnerable employment status and facing significant decrease in purchasing power in Mazar-e-Sharif (Balkh province). ACTED will provide a full one-month food basket (6,500 AFN / 90 USD) through vouchers to most vulnerable beneficiaries who will redeem their vouchers against food items at local markets, with pre-identified shopkeepers.
