On 22 June, a powerful 5.9-magnitude earthquake struck southeastern Afghanistan in the early morning.
The tremor left more than 1,000 people dead and some 270,000 affected. The provinces of Giyan, Paktika, and Khost are amongst the hardest hit.
The event has worsened the already-dire humanitarian situation in Afghanistan, where some 24 million people are already in need of humanitarian assistance.
With EU humanitarian funding, the Norwegian Refugee Council has provided cash assistance to over 200 families affected by the devastating earthquake.
