COVID-19: the Foundation’s Response | 2nd Round of Humanitarian Assistance
Following the food and non-food items provided in April 2020, the Foundation distributed a second round in October-November 2020, reaching 2,400 families in 12 KP districts: Abbottabad, Battagram, Dera ismail Khan, Haripur, Karak, Kohat, Mardan, Mansehra, Nowshera, Peshawar, Shangla and Swat. The food items included flour, rice, lentils, cooking oil, sugar, tea, etc. — for one family for a month. The non-food items included soaps for better hand hygiene and sanitary napkins for women. This second round was funded by the EU, by diverting funds from its programme: Citizen Engagement for Responsive & Accountable Governance. The humanitarian assistance was distributed in close partnership with local CSO partners.
