The IRC distributes emergency aid to more Afghans in need
Family leaders in Afghanistan's Badghis province head to their temporary homes with blankets, stoves, and other essentials provided by the IRC to get them through to the end of winter
This past weekend, an IRC team loaded a truck with blankets, stoves, jerry cans, kitchen kits, and water purification tablets to distribute to those in the most need. Given that many of the recipients are melting snow or using pieces of plastic wrap to harvest water, the chlorine tablets will help keep their limited supplies clean. “If we can provide something longer term, we certainly will," Jenkins said.
