Afghanistan Emergency Fund

Afghanistan Emergency Fund

Summary

Across Afghanistan, thousands of civilians have been killed and hundreds of thousands have been forced from their homes. With the Taliban now in power, families, communities, and livelihoods are more threatened than ever. GlobalGiving is working closely with our partners on the ground to get emergency support to people in Afghanistan and those fleeing the country. Your donation will go to vetted nonprofits working in the region, as well as those working to help Afghan refugees.

Challenge

This rapidly unfolding humanitarian emergency is dangerous for all Afghans but women, children, activists, and journalists are particularly at risk. Access to food is even more difficult for many families and staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic poses additional challenges. We know from our ongoing work in the country that it is vital to get funds to locally-led nonprofits that can provide both emergency relief as well as long-term support to their communities.

Solution

Our partners are helping those who are most at risk-including women, children, and activists-stay safe. Your donation will support their life-saving work. All donations to this fund will support both emergency and long-term relief in Afghanistan. As additional needs emerge from this rapidly changing situation, we will support the efforts of vetted organizations that are local to impacted areas.

How Your Donation Will Be Used

When you donate to GlobalGiving's Afghanistan Emergency Fund, your donation will be used to:

  • Provide urgent support to locally-led organizations helping people and families across Afghanistan
  • Support women, activists, and journalists
  • Help refugees fleeing Afghanistan
  • Assist in resettlement and advocacy for Afghan refugees arriving in the United States and other countries around the world
  • Meet other emerging needs during this rapidly changing situation

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.
