Even when it seems life can’t get harder for Afghan families, then they are faced with a new obstacle.
The U.N. now estimates that more than 3 million Afghans are displaced in their own country.
These people are on the verge of starvation — not just because they’ve had to flee their homes to escape the Taliban — but because of severe droughts, food shortages, and the approach of winter.
That’s why families in Afghanistan need your help now more than ever.
Since the Taliban seized control of Afghanistan in August, families have been doing whatever it takes to survive. Unfortunately, those who can’t escape the country are stuck in hiding with very little food or water.
“Many people could run out of food by the end of this month just as winter approaches,” the secretary-general of the U.N. said during a recent conference. And despite years of war and violence, the U.N. noted this could be “their most perilous year.”
Women can’t work because armed militants are roaming the streets and warning them not to come outside alone. Crops are scarce due to ongoing droughts. And food shortages have caused prices to skyrocket, which means out-of-work families have no way of feeding their loved ones.
The people of Afghanistan truly are facing “their most perilous hour.”
But the good news is you can help them.
Every $35 you give will provide a week’s worth of emergency food, clean water, medical care, and other lifesaving supplies to one displaced person in Afghanistan or another high-conflict area.
These people are surviving day-to-day. They’re trying to find their next meal and figure out where their children will sleep tonight … all while trying to evade the Taliban.
It can seem overwhelming at times. But just think about that one person you can help. For just $35, you can help provide for someone’s immediate needs and help calm their fears by giving today.
When you do, your gift will be a beautiful example of God’s love to the men, women, and children who need it most.
