Escalating violence in Afghanistan is putting the lives of thousands of civilians at risk.
Through three decades of crisis, the IRC has worked in Afghanistan, providing millions of people with shelter, education, clean water, health support and other aid, and we will stay as long as we are needed. The IRC warns that increased conflict could spell tragedy for Afghanistan, where 18 million people are already in dire need of humanitarian assistance.
In response, we've launched a $10 million appeal to raise funds to ensure our teams can continue to deliver lifesaving aid inside Afghanistan — as well as neighboring countries where Afghan refugees are seeking safety — and inside the United States as Afghan refugees are resettled.
Our work in the country, which has from the start spanned “the arc of crisis” from conflict to resettlement, has never been more urgent and crucial. Read more about how the IRC helps in Afghanista.
