It’s hard to believe how much the world has endured since our last update to you. Your support of the Afghanistan Emergency Fund is making a difference and ensuring that communities in need are not forgotten as time passes.
This spring, donations from the fund supported three grants to high-impact nonprofit organizations using their skills and missions to meet the varied needs of internally displaced Afghan children and families.
Here is a short description of some of the critical work you’ve supported:
Bamyan Foundation is working to protect and support the Hazara community, a minority ethnic group that has faced increased attacks since the Taliban’s takeover in August 2022. The organization is providing first aid to survivors of recent targeted bombings on a local school and mosque. It is also collecting funds for survivors, coordinating with hospitals treating survivors, and contributing to funeral costs for families who lost loved ones in the attacks.
Mobile Mini Circus for Children is organizing collective games and uplifting activities along with providing food for children. This gives communities vital psychosocial support and regular access to nutritious meals.
Action for Development is leading feeding programs, health and midwifery trainings, and disaster response efforts following the recent flooding in northern Afghanistan. With operations across the country, the organization is making a big impact through its community-led approach in challenging environments.
And that is why we must thank you again! Your support of the GlobalGiving Afghanistan Emergency Fund powers community-led responses, and it means life-saving aid and services for Afghans experiencing food insecurity, physical dangers, and a shortage of health services.

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.
