Afghanistan Emergency

Afghanistan is in the grip of a humanitarian catastrophe.

Political, social and economic crises, especially for women and girls, have forced thousands to flee their homes and plunged millions into poverty.

According to UNHCR, 23 million people face acute food insecurity, while 8.4 million face emergency levels of food insecurity or famine-like conditions. One million children are at risk of severe malnourishment.

Humanitarian needs remain staggeringly high. 24.4 million people - 54% of whom are children - will require humanitarian assistance in 2022, an increase of 6 million from early 2021.

According to the Ecological Threat Register (ETR), Afghanistan is among the top three countries exposed to ecological shocks, leaving the country highly vulnerable to natural disasters and climate change. Floods and droughts combined with the already strained economy are leaving millions cut off from clean water.

Our emergency team is on the ground in Afghanistan responding to the catastrophe by distributing life-saving aid to all who need it. With your support, we can make a life-changing difference.
