Emergency Response - Afghanistan
The escalating conflict in Afghanistan has led to the displacement of nearly 390,000 people.
After years of conflict, the beginning of 2021 has seen a 47% increase in the number of people killed and injured compared to the same period last year, with 1,659 civilians killed and 3,254 injured.
Displaced, hungry & terrified Afghan civilians flee their homes in search of safety from the violence.
You can offer immediate emergency support! Provide food packs, hygiene kits & shelter to ease their struggle!
The Current Situation
During this period of increased conflict, a large part of the country has already been in need of support due to a wave of high COVID-19 numbers, as well as recent droughts. We are working with our partners on the ground to provide immediate emergency assistance to families in need. This will include life saving food, hygiene kits and shelter support.
Wherever or whenever crisis strikes, we’re here to help.
Our Emergency Response teams are experts at quickly, efficiently and compassionately helping people survive war, famine and natural disasters.
People in poorer countries are at least five times more likely to be displaced by extreme weather than people in rich countries. All of these issues are the most devastating to the people who have the least resources to cope with them – the world’s poorest, most marginalised people.
These people are suffering through no fault of their own.
We have to help.
“Whoever saves a life, it is as if he has saved the whole of mankind” (Qur’an 5:32)
