You can help the people of Afghanistan during this crisis.
After the withdrawal of foreign troops, Taliban forces now control all of Afghanistan's major cities, including Kabul. An estimated 17,600 people in Kabul are now displaced and require urgent humanitarian assistance.
Please donate to support churches working together through the ACT Alliance to assist about 50,000 uprooted families in Afghanistan and neighbouring countries. The priority for support will be food, shelter, household items and health care supplies. Donations made here will be directed to ACT Alliance members in the region to provide this much needed humanitarian support.
*Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible in Australia. Please give generously.
