For many, winter is a devastating reality. From late 2014 to early 2015, IRUSA carried out a winterization project in five provinces in Afghanistan that benefited over 16,400 people. This project combated the harsh winter months by providing these Afghan families with firewood and food. The food included wheat flour, beans, cooking oil, salt, sugar, and rice. IRUSA coordinated with UNOCHA, IOM, and other UN agencies to ensure those most in need received the aid.
