"The worst humanitarian crisis on earth."

David Beasley, Executive Director of The UN World Food Programme

Afghanistan is suffering its worst drought in almost 30 years and, as hunger and malnutrition reach record levels, more than 8.7 million people are on the brink of famine.

Please donate today to help older people and their families in Afghanistan.

What is the impact on older people?

Older people in Afghanistan have already lived through 40 years of conflict and economic crisis and are facing unique challenges in this current crisis.

How your donation could help

Together, with our partner on the ground in Afghanistan, we have developed an emergency cash relief programme that is getting aid quickly to the older people who need it most.

Your donation could enable older people and their families to buy lifesaving necessities such as:

  • Food, for themselves and their families
  • Clean water and hygiene products
  • Essential medicines and healthcare

"The worst feeling is needing to eat but having no money for food."

You can help people like Wakil support his family and prepare for further hardship.
