As winter sets in across Afghanistan and temperatures fall below zero, for those without adequate shelter, food, clothing and blankets, the season can be deadly. Our Afghanistan Emergency Appeal will help save those who need our help.

Afghanistan is currently undergoing one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world. Already struggling to recover from the effects of war, ongoing instability and natural disasters, people are struggling to survive.

Millions of Afghans, especially women, are going for days without food, desperately selling their belongings to be able to feed their families. At least 12 million people are facing extreme hunger and more than 3 million people are just one step away from famine.

“People are starving, and it’s predicted that 97% of the population is at risk of sinking below the poverty line by mid-2022.”

— Dr. Naqeebullah Zaki (Project Coordinator, Islamic Relief Afghanistan) describes the situation on the ground

Islamic Relief is on the ground and is providing urgent food supplies and winter protection support to those in need across Afghanistan.

Please Donate Now. Help save lives.

Your Donations in Action in Afghanistan

Because of your generous donations, Islamic Relief teams on the ground have already delivered over 800 food packs that are supporting thousands of people, alhamdulillah!
In the coming weeks we will continue to deliver even more food packs, as well as protection items for the winter season.

It is imperative that food and other essential aid reaches these communities immediately, or the death toll could be catastrophic. Help us reach more families.

Supporting Afghan Refugees Arriving in Canada

It is expected that up to half a million Afghans will flee the crisis in their homeland. As vulnerable Afghans begin arriving in Canada, they will be in need of urgent living essentials as well as access to support services.

Islamic Relief Canada is committed to help ease the resettlement of Afghan refugees in Canada, and work hand-in-hand with community organizations across the country to increase our impact.

Donate today to start helping provide hygiene and living essentials for Afghan refugees as they try to find safety and a new home.

The Forgotten People of 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. Growing poverty and increasing food prices have further exacerbated the food insecurity that has left countless vulnerable people hungry.

The people of Afghanistan rely on rain-fed agriculture, livestock, and natural pastures as their source of livelihood. Now drought has left over 12 million people facing a food emergency.

Islamic Relief is on the ground working to distribute emergency aid to those most in need. Your support will reach Afghanistan through urgent food supplies, hygiene kits, water storage kits and shelter supplies.

Every dollar you give increases the number of lives we are able to save.

Whoever relieves a Muslim of a burden from the burdens of the world, Allah will relieve them of a burden from the burdens on the Day of Judgement.
– Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

Islamic Relief in Afghanistan

Islamic Relief has been working in Afghanistan for over 20 years, we were one of the few aid agencies to continue working in Afghanistan during the military incursions, and we have offices in Kabul, Herat, Bamyan, Nangarhar and Balkh.

In recent months, our teams on the ground have distributed food packs to the most vulnerable families in Kabul, Nangarhar, Balkh, Bamiyan, and Kapisa provinces. Qurbani meat distributions to over 700 families have also been carried out.

Due to the current situation, the safety and security of our staff in Afghanistan is a top priority. We are closely working with the authorities to carry out humanitarian activities as the situation gets more stable.
