60% of those displaced are children 

As the fighting in Afghanistan spreads, thousands more families are fleeing for their lives. 

An estimated 665,182 people have now been displaced by conflict in Afghanistan so far this year, among whom approximately 60% are children. 


UNHCR’s emergency teams, with some 200 staff in addition to some 13 national NGO partners, are staying on the ground and delivering life-saving essentials like blankets, sleeping mats and tents. 


But our stocks are running low. 

We urgently need your help to scale up our supplies as the situation worsens.  

Help us prepare so that we can protect these families who so desperately need support.

Other ways to give

1. More women and children have been killed and wounded in the first half of 2021 than in the first six months of any year since 2009

The UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) reported that there were 1,659 civilians killed and 3,254 wounded; a 47% increase compared with the same period last year. Women and children made up close to half of all these civilian casualties at 46%.

2. Less than 4% of the population is fully vaccinated against COVID-19

The spread of COVID-19 in Afghanistan is turning this complex situation into a deadly one. The health system is already overwhelmed, but the country is seeing a dramatic rise in COVID-19 cases.

UNHCR is providing buckets and jerry cans which are especially important in areas where access to clean water is difficult. UNHCR has also established hand-washing stations and distributed hygiene kits and masks.

3. Iran and Pakistan host nearly 90% of displaced Afghans

Both countries have granted access to territory and protection to Afghan refugees, along with health and educational services through national systems. Their hospitality and inclusive policies, spanning decades and generations, must not be taken for granted.
