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


The newest wave of conflict – the latest in 40 years – has forced more than half a million people from their homes so far in 2021. 

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

Help us prepare for the worst. 

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, has assisted some 340,000 internally displaced persons in Afghanistan this year. This includes providing core relief items, hygiene kits, family tents and other life-saving aid.

As a part of the broader UN country team, we will stay and deliver for the Afghan people for as long as we have access to people in need – but we urgently need your support. 

As winter looms, you can help us ramp our response so that we can help people displaced inside Afghanistan, as well as prepare to respond to refugees forced to flee to neighbouring countries.
