IOM Winter Assistance

With the generous contribution of the Czech Republic, IOM began household level winterization assessments in partnership with the Directorate for Refugees and Repatriation (DoRR) on 06 November for several hundred returnee families from Pakistan in four provinces of high return to identify those families who are most vulnerable to harsh winter conditions.

In total, IOM will distribute 510 winter support packages to 510 families (300 in Nangarhar, 100 in Kabul, 50 in Laghman and 60 in Kunar). Each winter package consists of a family sized tent (7 persons) and Tarpaulins, blankets, a gas heater, and 60 USD cash for fuel for 3 months.

Thus far, IOM staff have completed the assessment of 270 pre-identified vulnerable families in Kabul, 50 families in Laghman, and 60 families in Kunar. In Nangarhar, IOM has thus far assessed 180 families and assessments are on-going.
