Afghanistan: Help for the displaced

06-10-2000 News Release 00/38

Since fighting flared between Taliban forces and the Northern Alliance around Taloqan in August, the ICRC has been providing non-food relief – distributed by the Afghan Red Crescent Society, ACTED and Shelter Now International – for over 11,000 displaced people in the area of Faizabad and Taloqan.

The ICRC maintains a regular presence in Faizabad, but additional staff from Kabul have been dispatched there over the recent weeks to assess and respond to the need for humanitarian assistance in the area.
