Join the world wide rally for Afghanistan

As fighting intensifies across Afghanistan, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is warning of an unfolding humanitarian crisis, with women and children bearing the heaviest toll. Around 80 per cent of those displaced are women and children, like 24-year-old widow Maryam and her two sons and two daughters. 

Maryam and her family fled with nothing but a blanket and the clothes they were wearing. They’re now staying in a makeshift shelter in a camp in northern Afghanistan, around 34 miles (55 km) from where they lived, but are struggling to get enough food and to find clean drinking water.


Despite the challenges, UNHCR teams are responding to the most critical priorities by providing food, shelter, hygiene and sanitary kits and other lifesaving assistance. The UN Refugee Agency is urging the international community to urgently step up its support to respond to this latest crisis.
