Support for Afghanistan

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.

There has been an escalation of tensions in the country, which has caused hundreds of thousands of people to flee their homes - according to UNHCR, roughly 80 percent of the displaced people in Afghanistan are women and children. We know that in these conflicts, displacement puts the most vulnerable people in society at further risk of harm. In their displacement, they face increased exposure to Covid-19, escalating food prices, and risk of gender-based violence.


Thanks to our strong local partnerships, ActionAid's work providing educational programming and food security continues in seven provinces across Afghanistan. This work will be expanded in areas where internally displaced people are fleeing so that we can support them with basic needs which were lost due to the sudden departure from their homes. This response will include food, water, hygiene kits, counseling support, and other essential items.

Long-Term Impact

ActionAid's response is community-driven and rights-based, which means your donation today invests in change that lasts. ActionAid's support provides both short-term crisis response as well as long-term resilience building.
