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.
Following a 6.1 magnitude earthquake in Afghanistan in June 2022, which has killed at least 1,000 people, injured more than 6,000, and affected around 30,000 more, ActionAid is providing lifesaving support to the families in some of the worst-affected areas.
The earthquake has exacerbated the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the country, where nearly 20 million Afghans face acute hunger, and has disrupted essential services making it extremely difficult for people to access clean water, shelter, and medical support. ActionAid is on the ground supplying food, water, and cash transfers to support over 1,000 families who have been impacted by this disaster. ActionAid is committed to proving both short and long-term support to affected Afghans, and we are providing permanent housing to 50 families, while still working to mobilize further resources.
Now more than ever, your commitment to human rights makes a difference. Thank you again for your solidarity and support.
