The International Organization for Migration (IOM) continues to carry out its relief operations across Afghanistan in response to mounting, complex humanitarian needs fueled by natural disasters and insecurity while reengaging established livelihood, promoting durable solutions, community development and infrastructure projects.
IOM, along with the rest of the humanitarian community, is committed to stay and deliver relief and assistance to mobile and displaced populations in Afghanistan as well as local communities. We will continue to operate in a neutral and impartial manner but insist on unimpeded access and assurances that our staff and service providers can deliver assistance and services – particularly to women and girls and those most vulnerable – without interference.
IOM’s financial requirements under its Comprehensive Action Plan for Afghanistan and Neighbouring Countries in 2023 totaled USD 900 million, targeting 14.6 million among the most vulnerable people including those on the move.
AID FOR AFGHANISTAN
Decades of instability and conflict have tested the resilience and strength of millions of Afghans. Insecurity, persistent droughts and recent earthquakes have added to the untold suffering of a country where nearly 6 million people are already internally displaced. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is committed to stay in the country and deliver life-saving assistance. But we can’t do this alone. Help us help more.
