The UNHCR and the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations are working together in Chagai district of Balochistan to introduce homestead gardens for Afghan refugees.
This collaboration will enable refugees to establish kitchen gardens which will provide them opportunities to engage in economic activities and eventually improve food security and nutrition for their families.
UNHRC Head of Mission in Balochistan Marin Din Kajdomcaj said that this was just the beginning of the cooperation between FAO and UNHCR and that organisations were obliged to jointly mobilise funds for follow-up activities for Afghan refugees in the districts.
In this connection, FAO in collaboration with UNHCR also organised five days training on integrated homestead gardening at the FAO model vegetable kitchen garden in the Balochistan Agricultural Research and Development Centre (BARDC), Quetta.
