Project Overview

OHW conducted a rapid assessment of 371 HHs in May 2022, finding that 107 HHs are in transitional shelters (completely destroyed or family living in open spaces or tent/makeshift), 182 HHs’ shelters are destroyed from 50% to 70%, and require repair, and 30 HHs’ shelters are destroyed from 25% to 50% and require small construction works or repairing. OHW will target a total of 419 HHs in Balkh Province (Chemtal District): 28 HH Transitional shelter cat A, 84 HH cat B, and 307 HH cat C damaged houses. A shelter scorecard is used to determine the extent of the damage. HHs with cat A (transitional shelter support) will receive $1472 (7 members in HH) in three installments, while HHs with cat B damaged houses will receive $550 and HHs with cat C damaged houses will receive $330 in two installments based on ES&NFI cluster standard criteria. To allow people to take control of their own construction activities, payments will be made in cash. Due to the lack of other options, installments are delivered by an FSP (Buloro) via cash in envelop in local currency. Market monitoring has confirmed the availability of required materials and will continue to monitor prices and goods available throughout the project.
