How is Afghanaid responding to the current crisis?

Over the past year, we have been responding with emergency assistance where needed and helping communities get through this difficult time. We are now also supporting families to get back on their feet and rebuild their lives. Our ability to continue working is assisted by our strong local roots, our reputation for impartiality and the generosity of our supporters from all over the world.
