The heart of Afghanistan is breaking. And so are many of ours across Australia. Daily, we see what desperation looks like as families flee their homes or struggle to protect their children. Daily, we read how fear steals even the basics in life—in only a matter of days.

Decades of a refugee crisis have resulted in nearly six million Afghans forcibly displaced from their homes. The Taliban’s recent takeover of the government has severely compounded the crisis, forcing hundreds of thousands to flee from their homes and tens of thousands in need of urgent humanitarian assistance.


Your financial gifts can mean the difference between life and death in this crisis. They show the world that God is greater than the crisis in Afghanistan.

Baptist World Aid’s partner is active and committed to continue meeting the needs of those most vulnerable: displaced families.

Given the changing situation in Afghanistan, your financial gifts will be made available as soon as it is practically possible and safe for our Christian partners. Like you, we pray for the right time to enable our partners to continue helping displaced families at risk of starvation, keep families warm and sheltered in camps during the oncoming winter, and provide mobile emergency healthcare services and medical assistance.

Baptist World Aid’s response is to meet the immediate needs of displaced families in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Our local Christian partners are poised to provide critically needed emergency supplies including monthly food aid, blankets, mattresses and plastic sheets for winter protection.

Please donate today. Join us as we respond to this unfolding tragedy and provide real assistance to those who need it most. Thank you!
