Afghanistan's Collapse Puts Civilians At Risk

The perilous state of Afghanistan had made the situation dire for civilians: especially women and children. These civilians are fleeing for their lives for safer refuge after living in a region rife with conflict for over 20 years.


Our Response

It is genuinely unsafe in the region, especially for  humanitarian organizations. We are on the ground with our contacts and assessing the needs  for our beneficiaries on a regular basis. 

Yet, despite the risks, we are there to help with food and shelter. 

With all borders closing, we are still finding ways to get aid to those who need it most. Given our 20-year track record of saving lives and creating social change we are using our extensive humanitarian network to help anyone we can. Items like tents for shelter and food are able to cross borders without conflict, and so we will start with providing shelter and nourishment.

Our Domestic Response

As waves of refugees arrive in the United States, we work with federal refugee resettlement agencies to provide much-needed assistance. Help us welcome Afghan refugees with critical items such as food, temporary shelter, and baby essentials. 

We pledge to invest half a million dollars to assist refugees on a case-by-case basis and provide financial assistance for organizations working directly with Afghan refugees.

Our International Response

We have two decades of experience administering humanitarian aid in the region. Once again, our team is witnessing a humanitarian crisis.Internal displacement has left nearly 400,000 Afghans without a home this year. They join 2.9 million Afghan civilians who are already displaced due to conflict. Our team is on the ground to provide displaced civilians with food, shelter, hygiene, and other life-saving assistance.

Help Afghans Here

As for humanitarian aid, it is very difficult but urgently needed. Thousands of people do not have access to any services whatsoever. We are trying to set up some service tents so we can provide warm food and basic services.
