Act now to save lives

Afghanistan is in the grip of a catastrophic food shortage – half of the population don’t have enough to eat. Now, the bitter cold is setting in, with temperatures dropping to as little as -20°C.

Your support will help our local partners provide emergency food packages, as well as distribute winter kits to help families who have lost their homes stay warm.

The generous donations of our supporters have already made a difference – hundreds of families have received life-saving support. But the situation is getting worse every day.

‘We are not living like normal humans,’ says Muhannad, a 38-year-old father of three. ‘How will life go on in a family without bread, clothes, fuel, and less than 80 pence per week?’

Every night, Muhannad and his wife have to listen to the cries of their hungry children. More than 3 million children like theirs are at risk from severe malnutrition. But together, as the church, we can save lives and restore hope and dignity to people like Muhannad.

You can make a difference. Please support our appeal today.

Donate now

In the event that we raise more than is needed to support our partners in Afghanistan, your gift will be spent on similar emergency responses and to prevent the impact of disasters on other vulnerable communities.

On the edge of disaster

Years of conflict, poverty and the disruption caused by the pandemic were already taking their toll on the people of Afghanistan. The recent conflict and change of government, coupled with the worst drought in 27 years, have tipped the country over the edge. Economic collapse has sent food prices soaring.

By donating to our appeal, you will be enabling our local partners to meet the immediate needs of the most vulnerable and marginalised people.
