Afghanistan situation – Give Now
The newest wave of conflict – the latest in 40 years – forced over 700,000 people from their homes. Ongoing drought, economic crisis and natural disasters like earthquakes are shattering already devastated communities while fighting and bombings still wrack parts of the country.
And now families face a brutal winter.
Many displaced families lack sturdy shelters to protect them from the elements, basic items like blankets, and cash for essentials like food and medicine.
Your help is urgently needed. You can help give people displaced inside Afghanistan the lifesaving support they need to survive the freezing weather.
Our teams are rapidly working to address the critical situation of forcibly displaced families with emergency shelter and core relief items:

How would you like to donate?
By making a monthly donation to UNHCR, you will provide refugees with ongoing relief and protection and help them regain hope for a better future. Your monthly donation will also be used for any emergency preparedness and response activities, like supporting the forcibly displaced from Ukraine and any emergency globally that needs our urgent assistance.
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.
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.
