Earthquake in Afghanistan

Families are struggling to survive after a devastating earthquake flattened entire villages in western Afghanistan.

Over one thousand people have died. Thousands more have lost their homes and livelihoods – and the number of people is expected to rise even further.

UNHCR is on the ground responding to rising humanitarian needs. But we need your help to do more.

This latest disaster comes on top of years of conflict, drought and economic crisis. As the winter season approaches, your support is vital.

Give today, to help us provide life-saving assistance to people affected by the earthquake.

Please donate now.

How does UNHCR spend my donation?

Your money helps UNHCR provide protection, shelter and other forms of assistance, and advocacy on behalf of displaced and stateless people every year

We ensure that as many funds as possible are redirected to refugees, stateless persons and asylum-seekers. 85 per cent of all funds raised go directly to field operations. 7 per cent is allocated for global programmes, helping refugees, internally displaced people, asylum seekers and stateless people under the UNHCR mandate around the world, and 8 per cent is for headquarters administration.

UNHCR staff work as closely as possible with and for people forced to flee, with 90 per cent of our workforce based in field locations. For further details on UNHCR's budget, read our Global Report.

About us:

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is a global organisation dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for people forced to flee their homes because of conflict and persecution.

We lead international action to protect refugees, forcibly displaced communities and stateless people.

We deliver life-saving assistance, help safeguard fundamental human rights, and develop solutions that ensure people have a safe place called home where they can build a better future. We also work to ensure that stateless people are granted a nationality.

We work in over 130 countries, using our expertise to protect and care for millions.
