Challenge

The Afghanistan earthquake killed more than 1,000 people and injured at least 1,500. The number of causalities is expected to rise as search and rescue operations are ongoing. This earthquake is compounded by the severe hunger and economic crises Afghanistan is facing right now under Taliban rule. Getting critical aid to the communities that need it requires understanding security concerns, the impact of political embargoes, and logistics and operational challenges in the region.

Solution

Airlink secures donated airlift from major airlines, and when needed pays for transportation and related costs to get priority humanitarian aid from first mile to last mile to people in need. This support will allow our relief partners on the ground in Afghanistan to invest their budgets in reaching more people affected by the earthquake.

Long-Term Impact

This earthquake is compounded by the severe hunger & economic crises Afghanistan is experiencing under Taliban rule. According to a UN report in May, more than half of the population is food insecure; and a 'massive' measles outbreak is straining an already weak health system. Airlink supports NGO partners across the spectrum of critical aid needed including strengthening health systems, ensuring access to clean water, and providing nutrition for those facing food insecurity.
