Challenge

The earthquakes struck in western Afghanistan, inflicting widespread damage in Herat Province along the border with Iran. The disaster adds to already acute hardship in Afghanistan, a country in the grip of a worsening humanitarian and economic crisis after the Taliban's takeover in 2021. Nearly half of the country's 39 million people face severe hunger, including around three million on the brink of starvation, which deepens the challenge of recovery as families also prepare for winter.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support earthquake relief and recovery efforts in Afghanistan, sending food, clean water, medicine, and other essential supplies to people in need. Once immediate needs are met, the fund will transition to support long-term recovery efforts led by local organizations in Afghanistan.

How Your Donation Will Be Used

Your donation will be used to:

  • Provide food, clean water, and medicine to survivors
  • Provide shelter and temporary housing to people who lost their homes
  • Provide psycho-social and mental health support to survivors
  • Support economic relief efforts
  • Support long-term recovery efforts
  • And much more

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
