Afghanistan is in crisis - please help and donate
Over 24 million people in Afghanistan – more than half the population – currently need humanitarian assistance just to survive. 95% of people don't have enough to eat, and 11 million people are in danger right now because of food insecurity.
The country’s economic collapse has sent food prices soaring, healthcare is difficult to access, and millions have been uprooted from their homes due to conflict or extreme weather.
When the earthquake struck in June it caused even more devastation. Over 1,000 people lost their lives and thousands more were injured or made homeless. The earthquake also damaged and destroyed vital infrastructure like schools, health centres and water networks.
We need to act now to save lives. Afghanistan was already on its knees – years of conflict, poverty, and the disruption caused by the pandemic had taken such a huge toll on the country’s people. But the recent conflict and change of government, followed by the earthquake and the worst drought in 27 years, have tipped the country over the edge.
