Survivors of Afghanistan’s earthquakes need food and shelter

“Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)

After facing Afghanistan's deadliest earthquake in 20 years, families in Herat province are now struggling with the aftermath of five more devastating quakes. These events have demolished entire villages, taken over 1,400 lives, mostly women and children. Now, they face the bitter temperatures of winter amid the ruins of their homes.

$100 Emergency Kit - provide food, water and vital medical aid.

Afghanistan was hit by two deadly 6.3-magnitude earthquakes, followed by a series of powerful aftershocks, causing devastation to homes, communications, and roads. More than 1,400 people were killed, 10,000 homes have been destroyed, and more than 20,000 are badly damaged.

Our ongoing response

Human Appeal is in Herat, distributing tents and hot meals to families who have survived the earthquake. A staggering 157,000 people need help this winter as they face hunger and sub-zero temperatures without a home to protect them.

Afghanistan is already grappling with a severe humanitarian crisis. food insecurity, 93% of families are food insecure and over a third of the population struggling to meet their basic needs. Economic collapse, climate-related drought, and conflict have left one in three people hungry, while 2 million children are malnourished. Thousands have been displaced due to conflict, while the country is also struggling with COVID-19 and a healthcare system on the brink of collapse.
