We are back at it again! Most of you will have seen the tragedy unfolding in Afghanistan as the Taliban regains control of Kabul after their previous reign 20 years ago. The men, women and children of Afghanistan need humanitarian aid now more than ever. For close to 40 years, Afghanaid has worked with millions of vulnerable Afghans across Afghanistan, providing them with the training and tools they need to help themselves, their families and their communities.

We want to make this our biggest fundraiser yet. We will be aiming to complete the journey that Afghanistan citizens and British military staff will be undertaking in their evacuation to the United Kingdom. The distance from London to Kabul is 4,687 miles so that’s our target! We will do this through walking, biking, running and swimming, basically by any means necessary. If you can donate, it would be so appreciated. If you'd like to do more, you can pledge to take some of these miles to do yourself and ask your circle to donate to your personal challenge via this page! Laura Polley
