Afghan families are homeless in their own country.
Across Afghanistan people have run for their lives to escape the return of the Taliban. But the people who remain have nowhere to go. Cities — even Kabul, the capital — have been overtaken and are overrun with extremists.
The families living in displacement camps have the clothes on their back but not much else.
You can help, though. You can provide basic essentials that a displaced Afghan needs to survive. For only $35, you can provide a week’s worth of food and other essentials to one person fleeing the Taliban.
Our partners on the ground in Afghanistan recently visited families who are temporarily living in a mosque because they have nowhere else to stay. Over 300 people were crammed into the building and courtyard. Outside, Taliban militia patrolled the area.
In other areas, people are sleeping out in the open with no shelter at all.
When our partners gave one woman food, clean water, a blanket, and a tarp for shelter, she said, “This is all that I have to build my daughter’s hopes on now.”
When you give a refugee help like food and clean water, you aren’t just meeting a basic need. You’re also giving that person hope that there will be better days ahead.
Right now, your $35 will provide a week’s worth of food and essentials for a displaced person in Afghanistan or another high-conflict area.
A generous gift of $140 is enough to feed a family of four for a week.
Please give your best gift today and help refugees who are trying to escape violence and death … and please continue to keep these families in your prayers.
