What is UK Aid Match and how long is Afghanaid's appeal running for? Expand UK Aid Match brings charities, the British public and the UK government together to collectively change lives and support people around the world. It is designed to allow the British public to have a say in how UK aid is spent and provide opportunities to engage with international issues, whilst boosting the impact of work like Afghanaid's. For every £1 donated to a UK Aid Match charity appeal by an individual living in the UK, the UK government will also contribute £1 of UK aid - therefore doubling the donation - up to £2 million. Afghanaid's By Her Side appeal will run for 3 months, from 30th June 2022 - 30th September 2022.
