Today, the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) – of which Christian Aid is a member – launched a humanitarian appeal for Afghanistan.
Eight million people in Afghanistan face starvation this winter due to drought, conflict and Covid-19. Children are already dying and a million more are at risk over the next three months.
Give: Please help us to act now to save lives
Pray: The Moderator of the Church of Scotland invites us to pray for those in need in Afghanistan
What’s happening in Afghanistan?
The recent conflict and change of government, coupled with the worst drought in 27 years, have tipped the country over the edge. Economic collapse has sent food prices soaring.
If we don’t act now, more than 22 million people will go hungry as the freezing winter sets in, with children amongst those most vulnerable.
We know that many churches are already donating to the Christian Aid Christmas Appeal. Thank you. Your donation will provide clean water, seeds and farm tools to those impacted by severe flooding in South Sudan.
The need in Afghanistan is also great and urgent. And so we are asking you to consider also supporting the DEC Afghanistan Crisis Appeal.
Every pound raised through the DEC Appeal will be put to good use and will be match-funded by the UK Government.
You can donate to the DEC Afghanistan Crisis Appeal via our website or you can order emergency envelopes for a church collection.
