The project areas to be covered under COVID Relief Effort for Afghan Communities and Households comprise approximately two-thirds of the country. The remaining areas will be covered under the CCAP. Communities here refer to a combination of CDCs and Gozar Assemblies/Councils who will be the locus for implementation delivery of the project.
More specifically, the COVID Relief Effort for Afghan Communities and Households project targets all households in Afghanistan with incomes of US$2 per day or lower, twice the national poverty line. This broad coverage, covering an estimated 93 percent of the population, is required to assist households to withstand the impacts of the temporary disruptions to daily economic lives caused by the COVID-19 crisis and to encourage them to follow the social distancing norms.
