Afghanistan Emergency

Please help provide urgently needed food, shelter, and health supplies to displaced families in Afghanistan and refugees in Pakistan.

19 October update:

Thank you for your heartfelt support! We’re coordinating the best and safest way to send the funds to our local partner as they face the complexities of sanctions from the Taliban regime.

Since August, many communities have left their hometowns for safer areas within Afghanistan while others have crossed the border into Pakistan seeking refuge. It is estimated that over 300,000 people have now been internally displaced and over 10,000 more have arrived in Pakistan looking for shelter, food and safety.

Our local partner on the ground is now supporting refugees arriving in Pakistan while continuing to work towards supporting communities displaced within Afghanistan.

They are currently preparing to provide emergency cash assistance to families so they can buy food and other essential needs. In the weeks and months ahead, they will continue to protect the lives and dignity of the many families affected by this crisis.

In August, Taliban forces took control of all Afghanistan's major cities. Almost 390,000 people have been displaced, and tens of thousands now need urgent humanitarian assistance. They are in crisis.

Families have hurriedly left their homes, bringing almost nothing with them. They’re now in cramped, unsanitary camps that lack even the most basic medical and water facilities.

Despite the dangers involved, Act for Peace’s local partner on the ground is working round the clock to meet the needs of uprooted families, but they need our help to do it.

Please give today.
