Alpinter provides urgent winterization kits to Afghanistan
Winter is coming, which is cold comfort for those displaced by recent events in Afghanistan. At the moment, an estimated 3.5 million Afghans are internally displaced and another 2.6 million find refuge in neighbouring countries Iran and Pakistan.
Earlier in 2021, Alpinter provided field cots, sleeping bags and blankets to non-governmental organisations supporting both people in Afghanistan and refugees in nearby countries. Now, to help UNHCR
prepare for the fast-approaching winter period, over 3200 winterisation kits were shipped to Kabul from our strategically located warehouse in the UAE. Our large prepositioned stock of winterisation kits was a key factor in UNHCR’s decision to proceed with the emergency shipment, which will be used to insulate refugee shelters against the bitterly cold winter climate.
Alpinter is proud to assist UNHCR and other NGOs supporting the Afghan people who are facing an unprecedented humanitarian crisis. Rapid response to disasters requires careful preparation and foresight. Alpinter has strategically located stocks in the United Arab Emirates, Belgium, Pakistan and China, allowing our team to provide NGOs with fast and efficient supplies – a key factor in being able to respond quickly and efficiently to emergencies. This ensures that Alpinter is always ready for the unexpected.
