Afghanistan Crisis Appeal
Drought, economic collapse and rising global food prices have pushed millions in Afghanistan to the brink of famine. DEC charities are providing a lifeline to hundreds of thousands of people through food, cash support and life-saving medical treatment.
A crisis of this magnitude is not quickly resolved, and people in Afghanistan still need our support. We must not turn our backs on them now. Please donate today.
