“The situation in Afghanistan is rapidly deteriorating and we are witnessing large scale displacement amid what is now a humanitarian emergency.
Since the start of the year, conflict has already driven some 550,000 vulnerable people out of their homes – and numbers are growing by the day.
This latest wave of violence is another blow for Afghans, who have suffered more than 40 years of conflict, natural disasters, chronic poverty and food insecurity. On top of this, the COVID-19 pandemic has overwhelmed Afghanistan’s health system and less than four per cent of the population is fully vaccinated.
We need your help today to prepare for the worst.
UNHCR is committed to stay and deliver amidst the deteriorating situation and increasing displacement. We’ve activated our emergency preparedness and response and we’re assisting newly displaced Afghans.
We are supplying emergency shelter, food, health, water and sanitation support and cash assistance, despite challenges in accessing people in need.
But our stocks are running low. We urgently need your help to scale up our supplies as the situation worsens.
Help us prepare so that we can protect these families who so desperately need support.”
