ABOUT THE MISSION

SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL was created in Afghanistan in 1980 at the time of Soviet Occupation and has been supporting Afghan people for 38 years. SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL always maintains its presence in the country until 2018, without interruption covering a wide range of activities, (water, hygiene and sanitation / food security and livelihoods / shelter) for population affected by conflicts or natural disasters, from emergency response to development-oriented programs. The Organization has been working successively in almost all provinces of Afghanistan. In the past years activities were implemented in Wardak, Bamiyan, Khost, Paktika, Samangan, and Kunduz provinces. End of 2018 SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL had to leave the country due to lack of funding but continued to monitor the humanitarian situation in the country with the willingness to support vulnerable Afghan population. The evolution of the situation in the country, marked by a possible collapse of public services and a halt to certain development projects, as well as an aggravation of the impact of changing climatic conditions on rural populations, leads SI to reopen its mission in Kabul during the last quarter of 2021. In 2022, SI will aim at sustaining its support to vulnerable populations in Kabul, Kapisa, Bamyan and possibly Wardak and Logar.

The programs will include the 3 types of intervention regularly supported by Solidarités International. Priority will be given to livelihoods and food for the most vulnerable people, especially families suffering from SAM or MAM and in-country returnees. Rural families suffering from the drought will also be supported with agricultural inputs and infrastructure intervention when feasible. Access to safe water and sanitation will be the second axis of intervention, both in urban and rural settings, while paying a particular attention to the resurgence of cholera. Finally, SI will support families who lost partially or completely their shelters over the past few years due to the conflict.

Key information about living conditions

Living conditions are quite fair in Kabul, with possible access to all essential goods and services. It should be remembered that the consumption of alcohol is forbidden in Afghanistan. The security situation can be tense, and travel is sometimes restricted, but it is possible to have a social life.

Living conditions in the field are often harsher (limited access to electricity, harsher weather conditions, isolation, etc.) with paradoxically, depending on the area, less strict security conditions.
