UNHCR | Earthquake in Afghanistan

Afghanistan earthquake emergency
The people of Afghanistan are in the grip of one of the world’s worst crises.  

The newest wave of conflict – the latest in 40 years – forced over 700,000 people from their homes in 2021. Natural disasters like earthquakes are shattering already devastated communities. 

You can help Afghans survive this emergency.  

Many displaced families lack sturdy shelters, basic items such as sleeping mats and blankets, and are in need of cash assistance to buy food and medicine. UNHCR spokesperson Peter Kessler says that “nearly 23 million people—that is 55% of the population—are facing extreme levels of hunger, and nearly nine million of them are at risk of famine.”   

Your support is urgently needed. 

Your donation can provide people displaced inside Afghanistan with life-saving aid, as well as other emergency support throughout the year for refugees forced to flee to neighbouring countries. Give today to protect these families who so desperately need your help.
