How has Afghanaid been responding to the humanitarian emergency in Afghanistan?

Over the past two years, communities have been battling the effects of economic collapse, rising costs of basic necessities and successive droughts, as well as extreme food shortages. We've been responding with emergency assistance, providing food, shelter, cash and other vital household essentials to the most vulnerable and supporting families to rebuild and revitalise their livelihoods.
