IOM’s Humanitarian Assistance Programme (HAP) was borne out of the need to provide emergency and recovery assistance to natural disaster-affected and displaced communities country-wide, with its major aim being to save lives and prevent further displacement. Humanitarian needs are addressed through the distribution of Non Food Item (NFI) kits and Emergency Shelter kits (ES), prepositioned in 24 locations throughout the country for rapid distribution.
To enhance the programme’s efficiency and accountability, IOM has developed a comprehensive natural hazard incident database. The database supports HAP’s operational and monitoring needs, in addition to allowing swift information sharing on natural disasters (ND) and movements of natural disaster-induced IDPs with other humanitarian actors in Afghanistan. This report summarizes activities implemented and results achieved from July through August 2014.
