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.

Evacuees, currently constrained to accommodations on US military bases, need basic health care supplies and access to care. To reduce the cultural and linguistic barriers that Afghan evacuees face in accessing health care on US military bases, 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:

  • Procuring medications to meet patient needs at the bases
  • Launching a vision screening project (with first clinic on December 11, 2021)
  • Purchasing 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 arranged to procure multiple WHO approved InterAgency Emergency Health Kits (IEHKs) to be airlifted into 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.
