Afghanistan in Crisis

Millions of Afghans are on the verge of facing a catastrophic famine, and their lives are at stake. Afghanistan is experiencing one of the worst droughts in 27 years, and as a result food, water and supplies are extremely scarceDonate to the Afghanistan Emergency Appeal today and help our teams on the ground to get to those in most need.

The head of the World Food Programme has described the situation unfolding in Afghanistan as “the worst humanitarian crisis on earth”.

The situation is further compounded by a collapsing economy and rising poverty, and a harsh winter season already in sway – the situation is getting more desperate by the day.

22 million people – more than half of the population – are facing acute food insecurity in the next three months

Years of protracted conflict, the impact of Covid-19, the effects of climate change and now the current political turmoil, has pushed Afghanistan into one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Millions of lives are at stake, and children are already dying of hunger. 

22 million people – more than half of the population – are facing acute food insecurity in the next three months

With rampant unemployment and food prices spiralling out of control, current projections show that 97 percent of Afghans will be in poverty within a year. More than 8 million people are just one step away from famine, 3 million children under five are expected to suffer from malnutrition, and 1 million of these children are at risk of dying.

Families have resorted to selling anything they have left of value, and tragically, children as young as five are being forced to work for more than twelve hours a day to afford their families a meal.

Afghans are being plunged deeper into poverty and as the harsh winter season approaches, there’s even more of a terrifying risk to the lives of millions of Afghans.  Without taking action now, there is a real risk of a famine in the next year.

We are facing a race against time and funds are rapidly needed to support vulnerable families by providing life-saving aid ahead of winter.
