What’s happening in Afghanistan?
Afghanistan has been ravaged by conflict for decades. Political insecurity and a third wave of Covid-19 has left millions of people in need of urgent humanitarian assistance.
The entire country is now facing moderate to severe drought. Experts say it is one of the worst droughts in decades in terms of geographic scale.
14 million people in Afghanistan are facing a food crisis. Your donations are desperately needed to help save lives in Afghanistan, please donate now.

Islamic Relief is on the ground
Islamic Relief has been working in Afghanistan for over 20 years, we were one of the few aid agencies to continue working during the military incursions, and our Kabul, Balkh, Jalalabad and Bamyan offices remain open today.
Recently, our teams on the ground have distributed 13,061 food packs to the most vulnerable families in Kabul, Nangarhar, Balkh, Bamiyan, and Kapisa provinces. Qurbani meat distributions to over 10,000 families have also been carried out.
Our Covid-19 response in Afghanistan has reached over 308,514 people, and we continue to raise awareness and support women facing gender-based violence. Our teams in the UK have also supported Afghan refugee families by providing hot meals and delivering essential sanitary items.
Donate now and help us continue our life-saving work.
