As you all know, the crisis in Afghanistan has become a pressing issue in the world. Therefore, we wanted to fundraise for Afghanistan and try to help them out with the funds we raise.

Over the past weekend virtually the whole of Afghanistan, including the capital Kabul, has fallen to the Taliban. There is now tremendous uncertainty as to what the future holds for the people of Afghanistan. However one thing which is clear is that the current insecurity is fuelling a wave of internal displacement as people seek safety for themselves and their families. Humanitarian assistance is urgently needed.

Project Veerangana aims to help these citizens as best we possibly can by raising funds for the benefit of the Afghani's. That is why we request you to donate as much as you can, any contributions are appreciated.

A bit about Afghanaid:

Afghanaid is a British humanitarian and development organisation. For almost 40 years, their dedicated personnel have worked with millions of deprived, excluded and vulnerable families in some of the poorest and most remote communities in Afghanistan. They build basic services, improve livelihoods, strengthen the rights of women and children, help communities protect against natural disasters, and respond to humanitarian emergencies.

Their community-led approach gives ordinary Afghans a voice in their own development, making them active participants in shaping the future of their country.

With their years of experience, their majority Afghan team, and their deep understanding of local, cultural and ethnic issues, they have earned great trust and respect among the communities they serve. This has allowed them to gain access to some of the most underserved areas of the country.

Vision: A peaceful and thriving Afghanistan.

Mission: To provide Afghans with the training and tools they need to help themselves, their families and their communities.

Focus: They particularly target vulnerable households – including those headed by women, or with elderly, chronically ill or disabled family members.

How is Afghanaid responding to the crisis?

They are responding with emergency assistance where needed and supporting families who have lost their homes and livelihoods as a result of the conflict. They have already re-opened a number of their offices to continue their work in supporting remote rural communities. Their ability to continue working is assisted by their strong local roots and their reputation for impartiality.
