Afghanistan Emergency Appeal

Afghanistan is in crisis. Following the military withdrawal of NATO forces from Afghanistan, there has been a severe escalation in tensions in the region which is causing thousands of people, many of whom are women and children, to flee their homes and become displaced in their own country. As the conflict continues to intensify, people are running for their lives, many leaving their homes with nothing but the clothes on their back and few basic necessities.

Displaced women and families are in dire need of emergency humanitarian assistance including food, water, and essential items such as hygiene kits, cash, tents, clothing, and bedding

This horrifying humanitarian crisis is unfolding against a backdrop of Covid-19, leaving even more people at higher risk of exposure to the virus, as well as escalating the existing food shortage in Afghanistan. The situation is dire and evolving rapidly. 

As the situation worsens for the people of Afghanistan, ActionAid’s work to protect the most vulnerable is more urgent than ever. Please donate now.
