Coordination of Humanitarian Assistance (CHA), established in 1987 by a team of Afghan volunteers, is a non-profit organization registered with the Ministry of Economy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. CHA was started with the aim of providing emergency aid to Afghan war victims. However, the thematic foci of the organization has shifted over the years to include: promotion of health, nutrition and environmental health; development of education, cultural affairs and vocational trainings; development of agriculture, livestock, water and natural resources; community development and social protection; disaster reduction and responding to emergencies; and gender mainstreaming.

The organization envisions to work as an effective reliable, innovative and a pioneer organization in the field of community development and reduction of vulnerability with its organizational mission being to empower individuals and communities, in joint efforts with social and civic institutions and the private sector. CHA’s main target groups are lower class rural communities across 73 districts in Afghanistan with a distinct focus on vulnerable populations and in particular, women, children and persons with disabilities. It has 15 provincial field offices across the country supported by 25 district offices in Kabul, Panjsher, Jawzjan, Herat, Kandahar, Parwan, Balkh, Sar-e-pul, Farah, Ghor, Kapisa, Samangan, Faryab, Helmand and Nangarhar provinces of Afghanistan.
