An Unfolding Humanitarian Disaster
With the recent developments in Afghanistan, the country is at the brink of one of the fastest-growing humanitarian crises in the world.
Four decades of war, chronic poverty, natural disasters, and COVID-19 pandemic have impacted Afghanistan to the extent that in January this year, it had the world’s second-highest number of people facing emergency food insecurity.
Like all humanitarian disasters, women, girls and children are bearing the brunt of the violence, exploitation and displacements in Afghanistan. There are around 550,000 Afghans – 80% of them women and children, who have been displaced by conflict this year. The recent armed clashes in different parts of Afghanistan pushed tens of thousands of civilians out of their homes, forcing them to seek safety wherever they find it.
Thousands of Afghan families have moved to the province of Kabul and are living in makeshift camps on the outskirts of the capital. The public parks in Kabul are filled with internally displaced people (IDPs) who have fled violence in their home provinces.
A vast majority of those who need lifesaving assistance and protection inside Afghanistan are women, girls and children.
Muslim Response USA is on the ground in Afghanistan with its partners to provide much needed relief to Afghan families affected by violence, displacement and hunger.
Your generous donations will allow us to deliver life saving humanitarian aid to the people of Afghanistan – 80% of those in need are women, girls and children, who have endured war and violence for decades and are still unsure of their future.
