Afghan Aid is providing emergency support to families whose lives have been turned upside down by the crisis. This comes in the form of financial support, food, hygiene kits and lamps, for which they are now urgently calling for donations as part of their Crisis Appeal. The charity is also providing assistance to remote rural communities who are now struggling to source food.
Islamic Relief has been working on the ground in Afghanistan for the last 20 years and have been raising awareness and supporting Afghan women facing gender-based violence for decades.
They are currently fundraising to provide emeregncy support for displaced families with hygiene and water storage kits, food packages and emergency shelter.
Women for Afghan Women
Women for Afghan Women have been working in Afghanistan for over two decades. As the crisis there unfolds, they are evacuating their centers and working day and night to provide shelter and resources to women and children across the country who are now displaced after fleeing the Taliban.
Named after a woman who was stoned to death by the Taliban in 2015, journalist Zahara Joya founded Rukshana Media to produce news from the perspective of women, working with a small team of five reporters and volunteers.
“Over the past seven years, I have worked as a journalist for various Afghan media outlets. Often the only woman in the room, I understood early on that women’s views are not considered and our voices are routinely sidelined” said the founder.
To continue reporting from the ground to ensure women's voices and issues do not go unheard in the global community Zahara Joya is now urgently fundraising.
