Every year approximately 250,000 people are affected by natural disasters in Afghanistan. In 2014, the North of the country saw one of the worst cases of seasonal flooding in years, affecting over 110,000 people. Many lost their homes entirely.

What is ACTED doing to help?

Our teams in Afghanistan have built 416 transitional shelters as well as latrines (toilets), for these internally displaced families in Badakhshan and Baghlan provinces in the North and North East of the country, with OFDA/USAID support.

Now, 4 months post-earthquake, ACTED and USAID are partnering to support affected populations, like the inhabitants of Sankhu, located in the northwestern corner of Kathmandu Valley, through the delivery of work programmes which are designed to improve medium-term food security through livelihood input and cash support.

Figures of the devastation and destruction caused by the Myanmar floods are constantly changing because of the difficulty in accessing hard to reach areas and collecting accurate data. According to the latest information, over 435,000 people need food assistance and the water and sanitation infrastructure of 12 out of 14 states in Myanmar has been damaged or destroyed. Over 2,500 schools remained closed and over 100,000 children under the age of five years are estimated to be affected by the floods.

Many residents of Za'atari refugee camp for Syrian refugees have installed and are now using private bathrooms in their homes, which has left a number of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) centres unused. As ACTED did not want these areas to become useless, they hosted group discussions with members of the community to discuss the best way to make use of these empty spaces. The community's first answer was: a community garden.
