Supporting Families in Afghanistan

By Francis Noon | Individual Giving Manager

Thank you so much for your support of this project. I’m writing to share some updates from ActionAid’s emergency response in Afghanistan. We appreciate you taking the time to learn about and act in response to this crisis.

As government ministers and donors meet virtually for the United Nations (UN) OCHA Afghanistan Conference 2022, a high-level pledging event for the emergency response in Afghanistan, ActionAid is calling for additional funding for humanitarian support.

 

Sudipta Kumar, Country Director of ActionAid Afghanistan, says:

 

“Afghanistan now has the highest number of people in emergency food insecurity in the world, and there is an urgent need to scale up humanitarian support to help save the lives of people left vulnerable by a harsh winter, drought, and the Covid-19 pandemic. The UN has predicted that, in the next two months, almost the entire population (97%) will fall below the poverty line.”

 

“Long-term support is essential to help create opportunities for work and financial stability. This needs to revive the Afghan economy and have a lasting impact on the lives of Afghan people.”

 

ActionAid is providing life-saving food support to 10,000 families across the provinces of Balkh, Bamyan, Ghor, Kabul, Nangarhar, Laghman, Samangan, Jawzjan, and Herat in Afghanistan. We are focusing first on providing food to families in the most precarious situations, with a view to moving towards providing livelihood assistance, such as financial support to restart a business; seed and fertilizer kits for a kitchen garden; or supporting people to restock their poultry or livestock. This will enable families to support themselves in the longer term.

 

Now more than ever, your commitment to human rights makes a difference. Thank you again for your solidarity and support.
