Islamic Relief supports Afghanistan Families


Thousands of vulnerable people in Afghanistan receive urgently needed food packages, hygiene kits and access to clean water from Islamic Relief.

Afghanistan is suffering from a severe humanitarian crisis amid drought, conflict and political change. The Covid-19 pandemic has also caused devastation in the country and there are now fears of an economic crisis as 23 million people have lost their livelihoods and conditions continue to deteriorate.

There is a major food shortage across the country, and many do not know where their next meal is coming from.

Islamic Relief have been distributing food packages to those affected. We plan to reach 11,000 of the most vulnerable families across 6 provinces, including Kabul and Nangarhar.

We are also providing essential kits containing blankets, bedding, cooking items and more to 600 families.
