Your support is needed

Your support can provide aid and relief to humanitarian crises, like the one currently unfolding in Afghanistan, where hundreds of thousands of people are now facing displacement, drought, COVID-19 and poverty. 

Donate Now

Afghanistan has faced decades of unrest, drought and poverty. Your support is needed now.

  • Half of the population is in urgent need of food, water, shelter and protection
  • 3.7 million children are out of school
  • COVID-19 has overwhelmed the health system, with less than 1 per cent of the population fully vaccinated.

The triple crisis of drought, COVID-19 and decades of instability leaves vulnerable families in a challenging situation. We need your help today.

Please give now, to support the most vulnerable families affected by crises, like Afghans currently facing unrest, drought and poverty.

The funds raised through this appeal will be used to provide immediate and longer-term humanitarian assistance to communities affected by crises in Afghanistan, and across the region. Any excess funds will be redistributed to our Asia Regional Appeal to support ongoing emergency efforts across the region.

Many of our global neighbours are currently facing emergencies that threaten the livelihoods of the most vulnerable communities.
  • A second wave of COVID-19 is causing widespread devastation across India, with over 400,000 recorded deaths.
  • In Indonesia, the country is grappling with COVID-19 cases and deaths at record levels, with low supplies of oxygen and nearly 1,000 deaths of health workers. 
  • A massive fire swept through a Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, and Bangladesh has now imposed its harshest COVID-19 lockdown to date.
  • In Timor-Leste, a once-in-a-generation flood destroyed homes and critical infrastructure.

Your generous donation today can provide urgent relief to communities around the world during emergencies.

Our local partners in Timor-Leste and Indonesia are distributing food to communities displaced by the floods. We are also providing blankets for pregnant women, people with disability, elderly people and children in Timor-Leste.
