Afghanistan Emergency Fund

What's Happening and How to Help

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 Emergency 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.

Help Educate Women & Girls in Afghanistan
Since August 2021, the Taliban banned education for girls above 6th grade in Afghanistan. This put a stop to school projects in the region led by Sahar. Instead of giving up on the girls of the region, we have embraced new ways of working with local teachers and organizations to improve equity for girls in Afghanistan through multiple programs in partnership with local organizations. Current programs focus on literacy, computer skills, English, women's empowerment, sewing, and coding!
Back To Life
Millions of traumatized children & youth in Afghanistan need to be hopeful, joyful, inspired, and invest in a bright future. The war, poverty, coronavirus, starvation, and the cold winter are imposing increasing depression & hopelessness. MMCC since 2002 has been the major source of educational entertainment, fun, and hope. Most mainstream donors and international resources have abandoned Afghanistan. Join us to bring educational entertainment fun, laughter, food, and hope for the children.
Provide Care for Afghanistan's Abandoned Children
We have been working to improve the lives of orphaned, abandoned and underserved children in Afghanistan since 2010. We started with a locally managed food security program (greenhouse and chicken farm) that helped hundreds of orphaned children find loving foster homes simply because they came with food. In 2020, we launched a home-based poultry program for war widows and we opened a vocational school for orphaned girls. Despite great challenges, all programs are active today!
Afghan Women and Girl's Survival Fund
MADRE is increasing resources to our Afghan Women and Girls' Survival Fund to support the urgent protection and relocation needs of women human rights defenders, as many activists and human rights defenders are unable to leave conflict areas throughout Afghanistan. MADRE's Fund provides resources for urgent needs, legal aid, security assistance, emergency transport, and safe passage, as well as funding families willing to house activists at great personal risk.
More than five million children in Afghanistan are on the brink of starvation, with the nation enduring the worst drought since records began against a backdrop of political and economic turmoil. We provide lunch, food packages, and food supplements for some of the most underprivileged families while mobilizing the youth to create joyful activities and bring hope into their communities.
Supporting Afghan Women and Girls on the Move
Given the situation of women and girls under the reign of the Taliban and the traumatic experiences during the journey to Turkey, this project strives for providing a comprehensive protection mechanism for the Afghan women and girls in order to meet their basic needs and support their well-being. Within this context, the project has three major components: provision of female hygiene kit and basic emergency kit; legal counselling and assistance; psychosocial support.
Support Children's Literacy in Afghanistan
Charmaghz is an Afghan education non-profit based in Kabul that has run mobile libraries for marginalized children since 2018. Now more than ever, we believe Afghan children have a right to quality education as well as a peaceful future--both of which must begin with a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy. We are doubling-down on our commitment to support Afghan children to develop critical skills in reading, writing, and basic maths. Our country's future depends on it.
Emergency Aid for Afghan Families
URGENT - help needed for Herat earthquake victims! Poor Afghans in Afghanistan are particularly vulnerable in times of disaster, whether natural or economic. Those without jobs, food or homes face starvation in harsh winter weather or after other natural disasters or following displacement. In recent years, there have been landslides, earthquakes and flooding incidents where we have been able to provide help.
Support and Protect Families in Afghanistan
Nearly 40 years of conflict have left Afghanistan with a deadly legacy of landmines and explosives that have killed and injured tens of thousands of people. Also because of the situation, Afghans are particularly vulnerable in times of disaster when floods or earthquakes strike. HALO's work plays a crucial role in stabilizing communities in Afghanistan by clearing explosives and responding in times of natural disaster.
Access to Primary Healthcare in Kabul, Afghanistan
Action for Development (AfD) plans to establish a hybrid-financed primary health care facility in Kabul, Afghanistan, to ensure affordable quality services to a population of 50,000. This project enables the establishment of a facility (Phase 1) that can then be sustained in the long-term (Phase 2) by user-fees and a small annual donation of USD $7,500.
Afghan Refugees Support Program in Pakistan
Since 2021 there are more than 20000 Afghan Refugees migrated to Pakistan to get refugee status or to be relocated to any safe country, with the support of UNHCR. However, they all remain stranded in Islamabad & other cities of Pakistan without any support from the world community. They require medical care, food, shelter, child and mother health support . CHCS has initiated a comprehensive support plan for them and conducted regular medical camps and distributed food and clothing among them.
Support vulnerable families in rural Afghanistan
Forty years of war and insecurity, chronic poverty, repeated droughts and the COVID-19 pandemic had already had a devastating impact on the people of Afghanistan. Now, overtwo years on from the Taliban takeover, for many millions of families, the humanitarian emergency shows little sign of abating. We are raising funds to deliver vital emergency relief to families in some of the most remote areas of the country whose lives have been affected by the ongoing crisis.
Help Families in Afghanistan and Worldwide
Afghanistan is currently experiencing one of the fastest-growing humanitarian crises in the world on top of a decades-long protracted humanitarian crisis. Your gift allows us to deliver comprehensive help to people around the world. This gift will be used where and when most needed.
Connecting refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine
4M refugees have already fled Ukraine to seek refuge in the neighbouring countries. Families are separated, since it's often women and children who can leave the country. Being forced to leave part of their family behind and having little information on what awaits them beyond the border puts them in a distressing situation. TSF provides them relief through free internet connectivity which helps them remain in contact with their relatives and look for essential information for their future.
Support for Afghanistan
The humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan is unfolding, with hundreds of thousands of people displaced in their own country. This humanitarian emergency is exacerbating an existing food crisis. 20 million people in Afghanistan are facing food shortages, including millions of children who are at risk of malnutrition. We will expand our long-standing programming and provide food, water, hygiene kits, and counseling support. A gift will enable us to support relief efforts like this around the world.
Hungerfree in Ramadan - food for families in need
Years of war and dangerous humanitarian crises have left large parts of the Afghan and Syrian populations at the mercy of starvation without support. However, both crises are in danger of disappearing from the public eye. With this year's humanitarian emergency relief during the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan, we would like to set an example of solidarity. Together, we can reach 120 Afghan families and 150 families in Turkey - mainly Syrian refugees - with food packages!
Protect Journalists Under Threat in Afghanistan
In Afghanistan, journalists have played a critical role in providing local communities with accurate and accessible information. The Taliban takeover of Afghanistan is leaving journalists, particularly women journalists, at grave risk. Internews is providing emergency funds to meet the immediate needs of Afghan journalists and to support them over the long term to continue providing trustworthy information to their communities.
Help schools, victims of terror attacks and IDPs
This project will help victims of systematic attacks on the basis of gender, race & religion and populations at risk of famine, drought and natural disasters . Due to school terror attacks in Kabul, Afghanistan, we will provide assistance to the families of victims and scholarships to the traumatized students. We will provide support to the internally displaced, vulnerable families, journalists, and refugees in neighboring countries with cash assistance for food, shelter and basic necessities.
Supporting Afghan refugees in Iran
Amidst intense fear and uncertainty in Afghanistan, we are seeing thousands of Afghan families, particularly women and children, fleeing each day. Many are seeking refuge in Iran. Relief International is providing immediate assistance to Afghan refugees crossing the border in search of safety, including food, water, and shelter - as one of the few international non-profits working in Iran
Moving Lives Forward for Children on the Move
The project objective is to support unaccompanied minors and separated children who have fled from Syria, Afghanistan, Iran, Somalia, Ukraine etc. and seek asylum in Turkiye. The relief action will respond to urgent protection and psychosocial needs via in-kind assistance. ASAM will facilitate the provision of clothing, shoes, food, hygiene materials, recreational materials, stationary and toys. Through this support, it is expected to prevent the intensification of the needs and vulnerabilities.
Helping Afghan Children Go to School in Pakistan
Pakistan currently hosts approximately 3,000,000 Afghan refugees. 37% of the total Afghan population living in Pakistan are school-age children between the ages of 5 and 16. Only 20% of these children are enrolled in school. Relief International is working to change this by collaborating with Afghan communities in Pakistan to improve girls' and boys' access to education.
This Ramadan, Educate 3000 Students in Afghanistan
Teach for Afghanistan Organization is working relentlessly to provide better learning opportunities to students in Parwan and Nangarhar provinces. With your donations, our 60 fellows can create mathematics and science-based teaching models and laboratory equipment with proper resources and educate 2000 girls and 1000 boys.
Helping Displaced Families in Afghanistan
This project will supply immediate short-term food relief for displaced families fleeing advancing radicalized troops in Afghanistan. Gifts up to $50 USD will be matched 50% until September 17th! It costs $40 to feed a family for 1 week, but with this match $50 will feed almost 2 families (net $75 after the match). Donate now!
Help Afghanistan
The United Nations estimates that approximately 550,780 people across Afghanistan are currently displaced and without shelter, food and water. Therefore, Hagar will focus on providing 4 key relief activities for 13,000 people over the coming months: (1) food provisions for vulnerable families; (2) providing a mobile clinic & healthcare; (3) shelter for displaced children; (4) safe spaces where children can continue to play and attend school.
PROJECT MITHRA - (Female Afghan Prosecutors)
Jewish Humanitarian Response (JHR), incubated by the Aleph Institute (Aleph), has been evacuating vulnerable Afghans who are on Taliban kill lists and resettling them in countries abroad. We have served many groups that the Taliban have sworn to kill, one of them being Afghan prosecutors. Many have been successfully relocated to Germany and Spain, and we continue to try to secure pathways for them in welcoming countries where they can start new lives in safety after all they have endured.
