SUMMARY OF EMERGENCY NEEDS, PLANNED REACH AND FUNDING REQUIREMENTS
On 22 June, a 5.9 magnitude earthquake struck south eastern Afghanistan, leading to wide-scale destruction across already vulnerable districts in Paktika and Khost provinces. In addition to loss of life and devastating injury, the earthquake has resulted in the destruction of critical infrastructure -- including homes, health facilities, schools and water networks -- leaving thousands vulnerable to further harm. The multi-sectoral Emergency Earthquake Appeal targets approximately 362,000 people living in high intensity impact areas (MMI 5+). A total of $110.3 million is urgently required to frontload life-saving response activities over the course of the next three months (July-September).
