Across Afghanistan, thousands of civilians have been killed, forced from their homes, or denied basic rights under the Taliban's return to power. Families, communities, and livelihoods are more threatened than ever. GlobalGiving is working 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.
This humanitarian emergency is dangerous for all Afghans but women, children, activists, and journalists are particularly at risk. The Taliban's ban of women and girl's education and NGO work comes with severe consequences for lives and livelihoods and forces families to make life-threatening choices. 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.
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.

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.
