Families are running for their lives

Recent conflict in Afghanistan has reportedly forced around 550,000 people from their homes. Having run for their lives with little more than the clothes on their backs, they are in urgent need of support.

Many people have remained in Afghanistan, while others have fled to neighbouring countries. Tearfund’s local partners are on the ground and have provided life-saving relief packages to those in need. The packs include food and vital hygiene supplies such as soap and face masks.

They’re also offering trauma support to people who have been affected by the horrific violence.

The need is vast. Afghanistan is also experiencing its worst drought in decades, meaning food and water supplies are limited. And the coronavirus pandemic means that hospitals are already overstretched.

Our partners are doing everything they can to help – your donation will ensure that they can do even more.

Due to the unstable nature of the situation, if our partners in Afghanistan are unable to continue their work then funding will be used in the surrounding region to support people who seek refuge there.

You can make a difference today. Please give whatever you can.

‘Our only aim was to save our children’

Noora* and her family had to make a desperate escape from the escalating violence.

‘We have witnessed the horror of conflict,’ Noora tells us. ‘We have seen our crops burnt and cattle die.

‘We left our home in a hurry, so we were unable to carry anything with us. Our only aim was to save our children.’

Noora was able to find temporary shelter. But with no money for food, she and her two sons had to go without.

The relief package from our local partner was a lifeline. ‘We are really thankful to your organisation,’ says Noora. ‘My children will be very happy.’

Please give today and help more people like Noora who have lost everything.
