Goals and objectives

The “Protracted Crisis Joint Response” project funded by Dutch Relief Alliance aims to mitigate the effect of the shocks caused by conflict, COVID-19, the impacts of natural disasters, such as flooding and drought. The project will provide multipurpose cash interventions and support through inputs, which will enable affected vulnerable households to abandon negative coping mechanisms, as those will be used to meet the most immediate needs. 

The project seeks to attain results under Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Food Security & Livelihood (FSL), Health and Multi-Purpose Cash (MPC). This will enable World Vision Afghanistan to holistically address the most pressing needs of the population instead of neglecting parts of the existing gaps. 

Key actions

Through integrated WASH, Health & Nutrition, FSL and Multi-Purpose Cash, the project is bridging the humanitarian response with longer-term resilience building, thus enabling communities to move on even after a crisis occurs. Through mobile health provision, the project will address the needs to the primary health care services that is drastically limited in the target locations. Through WASH, the project will provide access to safe drinking water, improve hygiene practices through distribution of hygiene kits and improve sanitation by building sanitation facilities.
