COVID-19 Relief Effort for Afghan Communities and Households (REACH)

Project objective

The project will help provide relief to Afghan households through grants to Community Development Councils (CDCs) to purchase food and sanitation packages for households in their respective communities. 

Project Summary

The COVID-19 Relief Effort for Afghan Communities and Households Project will be implemented through the Ministry of Rural Rehabilitation and Development (MRRD), the Independent Directorate for Local Governance (IDLG), and the Kabul Municipality. It will help provide relief to Afghan households through grants to Community Development Councils (CDCs) to purchase food and sanitation packages for households in their respective communities. By directly procuring these goods from local wholesalers and retailers, the communities will also help support small businesses in their localities. The new assistance will help the government enhance community service delivery through CDCs under the Citizens’ Charter program and reduce the immediate impacts of the pandemic on households across the country.
