Get Involved Support an Appeal Afghanistan Crisis Appeal Donate Fundraise With the freezing winter upon them, men, women and children in Afghanistan are confronting the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, with the UN reporting 22.8 million people are facing acute food shortages. The situation is only set to worsen as freezing temperatures grip the country and families across the country are without the means of keeping themselves warm or feeding themselves. The Executive Director of the World Food Programme describes the situation as being "as bad as you possibly can imagine." We must act urgently to save lives, prevent starvation and protect families against a further catastrophic humanitarian disaster. Read about what Afghanaid has been doing and what we have achieved so far. How can you help people in Afghanistan? We are asking for your help to urgently provide: emergency food parcels or cash for food; blankets and the support families need to heat their homes and keep themselves warm over the winter months; kitchen kits so that they can cook and safely store food; hygiene kits including towels, laundry soap and hand soap; items such as solar powered lamps, stoves and gas cylinders; emergency cash to cover a family's most urgent needs over the winter months so they can make it to spring; the support they need to recover and rebuild their lives come spring.
