Through the Rebuilding Livelihoods project, Hagar Afghanistan works to establish partnerships with companies to provide skills training and employment for women so they can support their families. Over the past year, more than 450 women have been trained in tailoring and are earning a stable income now.
In the current harsh winter conditions, HAGAR in the last two months provided additional winter blankets and tents to shelter the displaced people from the bitter cold. Temperatures are expected to dip further to minus 30 degrees in January 2024.
Many more families are currently in need of winter blankets, and heating systems to last through winter. Our team in Hagar Afghanistan continues to work and ensure safety for our beneficiaries.
Afghanistan remains at the centre of a crisis, as many families are displaced and women and children increasingly vulnerable with no access to education, livelihoods, healthcare and social security.
We are grateful for all the care and support that many kind donors have extended to the people in Afghanistan. Your financial giving enables the rebuilding and restoration work to continue. Thank you for your practical care and meeting their most immediate needs. As we press on in the year ahead, we hope you would continue to join us in providing for the people of the land.
