“I’ve been in IDP camps all over the world, but I’ve never seen anything like this.”

— World Help’s partner in Afghanistan

The Taliban has taken control of most of Afghanistan. Now innocent families are fleeing for their lives to escape the violence. But many have nowhere to go.

They have no shelter. No food. No clean water. And they have little-to-no hope for the future. That’s why they need your help.

Since May, the Taliban has been systematically taking over Afghanistan, leaving fear and death in their wake. On Sunday, Aug. 15, the Taliban reclaimed the capital city of Kabul. The president has fled the country. And thousands of civilians are on the run to protect their families.

People have been so desperate to escape that Afghans clung to the outside of a moving plane in an attempt to flee the country. Several people fell to their death after the plane took off.

It’s clear these families fear for their lives and their safety. Women and girls are especially in danger under the new Taliban rule. But these people have no resources and no place to go.

Will you please help in any way that you can?

Your $35 will provide a week’s worth of emergency food and clean water to a refugee in Afghanistan or another high-conflict area.

Right now, there is so much uncertainty. These families don’t know where they’ll end up or what the next weeks or months will look like.

Please keep them in your prayers, and please give your best gift today and help as many refugees as possible.
