About Handicap International:

HI seeks to support conflict and drought-affected highly vulnerable IDPs, returnees and host communities through the provision of emergency static and mobile support across Herat, Nimroz and Kandahar provinces, as well as by providing direct support to identified health facilities in target areas. This action ultimately aims to reduce the vulnerability to the health consequences of the drought, whilst enhancing communities’ positive coping mechanisms. It will do so by 1) Providing psychosocial support (PSS) services and psychosocial first aid (PFA) capacity building to communities whose levels of stress will intensify as a consequence of the drought. This will be done through both in-person (mobile and static teams) and remote support (helpline) to ensure broader outreach and follow-up of identified patients. In addition, HI will distribute tailored PSS kits to highly vulnerable identified cases which will enhance PSS provided during in-person sessions. 2) Scaling up COVID-19 risk communication and community engagement (RCCE) to enhance clear and consistent messaging through stakeholders’ and community representatives support and use of accessible IEC materials; 3) Increasing hygiene awareness in order to reduce highly vulnerable individuals and families’ exposure to COVID-related disease through the provision of hygiene education and hygiene kits; 4) Increasing health facilities’ capacity to respond to scaled-up healthcare needs by training identified health facilities’ staff in psychosocial first aid (PFA) and by supplying medical equipment to increase their capacity to respond without further straining existing resources. The action will target highly vulnerable individuals within at-risk populations due to the specificity of their needs – including people with disabilities, people experiencing psychosocial distress or mental health issues, etc.
