ActionAid's response in Afghanistan

Thousands of people in Afghanistan have had to flee their homes with nothing or very few possessions. ActionAid continues to work in seven provinces across Afghanistan, providing education for girls and boys, along with farming and food security support for families.

As part of our emergency response we are planning to reach 35,000 people with food support, safe water, and hygiene kits for women and girls. We will also provide psychosocial counselling support for people traumatised and displaced by the crisis.

Where your money goes

90% of your donation will go directly to our Afghanistan Appeal.

10% of your donation will be retained for ActionAid’s Emergency Action Fund which will only be used for ensuring we are prepared and able to respond quickly and more effectively to future emergencies and crises.

If the total amount raised for this appeal exceeds the funds needed for the response, ActionAid will transfer the remaining balance to the Emergency Action Fund. All Gift Aid claimed on donations will fund ActionAid’s work across the world, wherever the need is greatest.
