UNHCR Philippines | Afghanistan Emergency
The newest wave of conflict – the latest in 40 years – forced over 700,000 people from their homes in 2021. Natural disasters like earthquakes are shattering already devastated communities.
You can help Afghans survive this emergency.
Many displaced families lack sturdy shelters, basic items such as sleeping mats and blankets, and are in need of cash assistance to buy food and medicine. UNHCR spokesperson Peter Kessler says that “nearly 23 million people—that is 55 percent of the population—are facing extreme levels of hunger, and nearly nine million of them are at risk of famine.”
Your support is urgently needed.
Your donation can provide people displaced inside Afghanistan with life-saving aid, as well as other emergency support throughout the year for refugees forced to flee to neighbouring countries. Give today to protect these families who so desperately need your help.

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.
