A Life of Conflict and Suffering                        


Afghanistan is facing extreme economic hardship with four decades of political conflict coinciding with the worst drought in the past 30 years – in terms of geographic scale – intensifying the suffering of millions of vulnerable people in Afghanistan. The war, combined with an already dire situation of increased hunger, economic decline, and price increases in food and other essentials has spiked the rising poverty in Afghanistan and forced them on the verge of a catastrophic famine.

Islamic Relief is on the ground delivering vital food packs, water storage kits, winter clothing, and medical care through health centres supporting displaced families. Donate to the Afghanistan Emergency Appeal today and help our teams on the ground get to those in dire need.

The crisis in Afghanistan

Years of protracted conflict, the effects of climate change and the current political turmoil have pushed Afghanistan into one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises. Millions of lives are at stake, and children are already dying of hunger. Two severe droughts in four years have drastically affected food production, livestock and rural livelihoods. More than 22 million people are in dire need of humanitarian assistance.

Rampant unemployment and food prices are spiralling out of control forcing Afghanistan into extreme poverty in the coming months. A recent WFP (World Food Programme) report indicates that 95% of Afghanistan’s population faces unprecedented levels of hunger amidst widespread food shortages.  More than 8 million people are one step away from famine, including 3 million children under five estimated to suffer from malnutrition and 1 million at high risk of dying. The severe circumstances are rapidly deteriorating, and the need has increased, making our humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan even greater.

Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said:

“Whoever relieves a Muslim of a burden from the burdens of the world, Allah will relieve him of a burden from the burdens on the Day of Judgement.” (Tirmidhi)

Our work in Afghanistan

Islamic Relief, a member of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), has been present and working in Afghanistan since 1999, delivering vital humanitarian and life-changing development assistance. Our teams are on the ground, providing lifesaving aid in five provinces: Kabul, Nangarhar, Herat, Bamyan, and Balkh, focused on supporting the most vulnerable such as women, children, people with disabilities, and older people.

We also run eight mobile health teams, which are the only source of healthcare for many people who live in the country’s most remote rural areas and include hygiene and water storage kits to help prevent the spread of illness and disease. The psychological impact of the crisis unfolding and years of conflict has taken its toll on the people of Afghanistan. We have noted this and are providing people with home visits and psychosocial support during these challenging times.
