Afghanistan’s population of 38 million people are facing catastrophic development collapse on top of a humanitarian and economic crisis. Homes, hospitals and critical infrastructure like water and electricity systems have been destroyed, exacerbating the needs of an already vulnerable population.
The head of the World Food Programme describes the situation as “the worst humanitarian crisis on earth”.
Afghanistan now has the second highest number of people facing critical food shortages in the world. Over the last year, more than 90% of Afghans have been suffering from some form of food insecurity. More than one million children under the age of 5 are suffering from prolonged acute malnutrition, meaning that even if they survive, they face significant health problems, including stunting.
Help us to provide food parcels for them
GRF ARE ON THE GROUND
The United Nations Warns that 97% of Afghans will soon be living below the poverty line. Global Rahmah Foundation is on the ground and committed to stay and deliver support to feed the hungry, provide shelter and save lives. With your donations, we are ready to support vulnerable families through the multiple crises they are facing. Your donations will help us build emergency shelters, provide food parcels, hygiene kits and clean drinking water.
Around 8 out of 10 Afghan people drink unsafe water. Essential personnel for the maintenance of water and sanitation services have not received salaries for several months, meaning that 93% of children across Afghanistan (around 15.6m children) are currently left to live in areas of extremely high water vulnerability. Help us to help communities across the country by providing a clean source of water for consumption and hygiene.
Family Food Parcel
We are on the ground providing essential food parcels, containing enough long-life food to feed a family for up to a month. The items in these food parcels have been carefully selected to ensure families will have nutritious food. The contents include; flour, rice, tea, sugar, oli, canned goods such as lentils and beans as well as dates.
Hygiene is an essential part of preventing and protecting human health during infectious disease outbreaks. Following the devastating earthquake, our brothers and sisters in Afghanistan are in need of hygiene kits to prevent the risk of any life threatening diseases during these difficult times. Due to the current financial crisis in Afghanistan, people can’t afford to feed themselves let alone look after their hygiene. GRF distribute these hygiene packages to help try and prevent underprivileged people from getting any health complications associated with the lack of hygiene.
According to an article published by UNHCR, over 600,000 Afghans have been internally displaced and the number is rising day by day. Many temporary makeshift shelters are often built using scrap metal which does not hold up against the extreme weather conditions in Afghanistan during the winter season.
GRF are on the ground aiming to build sturdy emergency shelters to house a family of up to 6. These shelters will provide warmth and safety to ensure that families are able to get through the most challenging season in Afghanistan.
