The heart of Afghanistan is breaking. And so are many of ours across Australia. Daily, we see what desperation looks like as families struggle to feed 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 takeover of the government has severely compounded the crisis, with economic collapse leaving two thirds of the country in urgent need of 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 partners are active and committed to continue meeting the needs of those most vulnerable: displaced families.
Your financial gift has been made available so they can continue helping displaced families at risk of starvation. Your assistance will help keep families fed, warm and sheltered in camps.
Our local partners are providing critically-needed emergency supplies and longer-term support for families in Afghanistan. This includes:
- primary health care focusing on women and children
- safe pregnancy deliveries, antenatal and postnatal care
- psychosocial support
- behaviour-changing activities focused on health, nutrition and hygiene
- medicines to treat preventable diseases and injuries
- mobile health and nutrition teams to treat people with malnutrition.
We are also providing displaced families on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan with cash grants for monthly food aid, blankets, mattresses and plastic sheets for winter protection.
