Afghanistan Earthquake Appeal
On June 2022, a devastating 5.9 magnitude earthquake left destruction in its wake. Over 1,000 have died, and the likelihood that remaining survivors will be pulled from the rubble is quickly diminishing. Aside from their injuries, those impacted face the loss of their mud-brick homes and exposure to the elements. Please join us and share your support.
Healthy Beginnings: Supporting Afghans at Home and Abroad
Since the US announced the end of the war in Afghanistan, the world has been faced with the aftermath of its impact on individual lives. Amidst confusion, two groups with differing needs emerged – those Afghan refugees settling into their new communities in America and those civilians in need of crucial medical assistance in Afghanistan.
IMANA has committed to addressing the critical needs of all Afghans, working behind the scenes throughout this time to obtain relevant approvals and confirm critical logistical details.
Afghan evacuees need basic health care supplies and access to care. To reduce the cultural and linguistic barriers that Afghan evacuees face in accessing health care, we’ve already created a series of health care videos in Pashto and Dari in collaboration with the Afghan Medical Professionals Association of America (AMPAA).
Additionally, IMANA is addressing the Afghan arrivals’ immediate needs by providing healthcare in the following ways:
- Launched a vision screening project (with first clinic on December 11, 2021)
- Purchased 14,000 prescription glasses, for free distribution among screened patients
In addition, as Afghanistan begins to define its new normal, its people are in critical need of care. Therefore, IMANA has procured 5 WHO approved InterAgency Emergency Health Kits (IEHKs) to be transported to Kabul, for distribution amongst hospitals and medical centers. Each kit provides enough aid for 10,000 individuals for a period of three months.
Now is the time for us to work together to support all Afghans in need by providing emergency medical care at home and abroad.
