Challenge

The 5.9M earthquake struck eastern Afghanistan near the Pakistan border, causing widespread damage. It was the deadliest quake to hit the region in two decades. Survivors described buried villages in hard-to-reach mountainous terrain. 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 traumatic takeover in 2021.

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 to the Afghanistan Earthquake Relief Fund will be used to:

  • Provide emergency relief through the distribution of food, water, medicine and other essential supplies
  • Give shelter to displaced survivors
  • Bringpsychosocial support to affected communities
  • Support long-term rebuilding and recovery efforts

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.
