Summary

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.

Challenge

This has come at a time when people in Afghanistan were already facing a hunger crisis, with nearly 20 million Afghans facing acute hunger. Coupled with a lack of health infrastructure, the earthquake has the potential to be devastating.

Solution

ActionAid is planning an immediate short term (1 month) intervention that will reach approximately 800-1000 families in Paktika province with food and water and unconditional cash transfers during this critical time. ActionAid will continue to monitor the situation and respond accordingly as it develops.

Long-Term Impact

ActionAid's response is community-driven and rights-based, which means your donation today invests in change that lasts. ActionAid's support provides both short-term crisis response as well as long-term resilience building.
