We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for survivors of natural disasters like these. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future challenges.
The projects listed below are led by vetted GlobalGiving partners responding to this disaster. You can donate directly to a specific project or to GlobalGiving’s Afghanistan Earthquake Relief Fund and we'll allocate it to where it's needed most. GlobalGiving will post reports about how your donation has been put to use.
On June 22, 2022, a 5.9 magnitude earthquake struck the central region of Afghanistan, impacting Paktika and Khost provinces, claiming the lives of more than 1,000 people, injuring 1,500, and affecting an estimated 30,000 and counting. ActionAid is on the ground and will be working in the affected areas to address people's immediate needs, supplying food and water in the short term and assessing what support will be needed in the longer term, including cash transfers.
Between June 21-22, 2022 a devastating 5.9 magnitude earthquake occurred in the region of Paktika and Khost Provinces, eastern Afghanistan bordering Pakistan. According to a report released by the OCHA on June 23, approximately 770 people were estimated to have been killed. The number of deaths continues to rise and is currently estimated to be nearly 1,150.
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.
