AFGHANISTAN IS IN CRISIS
Afghanistan’s population of 38 million people are facing a 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.
Afghanistan now has the second-highest number of people facing critical food shortages in the world. More than three million livestock are also in danger of death due to lack of food and water, which will also lead to hunger amongst helpless civilians.
Over 3 million children under five are expected to suffer from acute malnutrition by March 2022, with at least a million of them at risk of dying. The head of the World Food Programme describes the situation as “the worst humanitarian crisis on earth”.
GRF ARE ON THE GROUND
The United Nations warns that 97 percent 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’re facing. Your donations will help us to build emergency shelters and provide food parcels, hygiene kits as well as water.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Family Food Parcel
We are on the ground providing essential food parcels, containing enough long-life food to feed a needy family for up to 2 weeks. The items in these food parcels have been carefully selected to ensure that families will have nutritious food, contents include flour, rice, tea, sugar, oil, canned goods as well as lentils, beans and dates.
Hygiene is an essential part of preventing and protecting human health during infectious disease outbreaks, including the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Coronavirus cases across the world and in Afghanistan are on the rise, our Hygiene kits will help our brothers and sisters to tackle the virus during these unprecedented times.
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 will build sturdy emergency shelters to house families of up to 6. These shelters will provide warmth and safety to ensure that families are able to get through the most challenging seasons in Afghanistan.
