Response to Humanitarian Crisis

Climate change, natural disasters, and food insecurity are some of the challenges Afghanistan faces ranking as the third most at risk country for humanitarian crises. Unexpected disasters increase vulnerability which continues to disrupt lives. Severe malnutrition and acute hunger affect millions due to harsh conditions, high food prices, and economic struggles. 

Zakat Foundation is responding to Afghanistan's humanitarian crises, including the recent earthquakes, via food distribution and emergency relief. We address urgent concerns like hunger, malnutrition, and impending harsh weather. Collaborating with local authorities, Zakat Foundation underscores its commitment to the resilient Afghan people and the power of compassion during crises.
