POMA had been working with the most vulnerable members of Afghan society, including voluntary and involuntary returnees’ and refugees, IDPs, and transnationally trafficked minors, for over three years prior to the fall of Kabul. With a grassroots-led approach we focused on the social reintegration of those receiving mental health and psychological support into wider society, and strengthening the mental health care and social care infrastructures in the country. Now, with some of our team residing in Switzerland, we are committed to continuing our support of Afghan refugees and migrants. Our team is equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to provide contextualized and culturally sensitive mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) to this population.
