Every year, as the weather turns cold, the ICRC runs a winter programme for Afghan detainees. By the end of October, the ICRC will have distributed over 26,000 parcels, blankets and other supplies to 72 national, provincial and district prisons all over Afghanistan. This is a huge undertaking, involving dozens of ICRC delegates, logisticians and other staff.
