UNHCR | Donate to help people displaced by the crisis in Afghanistan


The latest wave of brutality – the latest in 40 years of conflict – has forced more than half a million people from their homes so far this year. Thousands more are trying to escape as the situation in Kabul has unfolded. 

The crisis is taking the heaviest toll on women and children, who make up 80% of Afghanistan’s refugees and internally displaced people. Alongside homelessness and the threat of violence, they’re facing drought, food scarcity, COVID-19 and a health system at breaking point. 

Help us prepare for the worst. 

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is providing Afghans with emergency shelter, food, water, and health care, but our supplies are running dangerously low. 

We urgently need your help to scale up our supplies, so that we can help people trapped inside Afghanistan, as well as refugees forced to flee to neighbouring countries.  

Please donate now.
