Crisis in Afghanistan: How to Help

Afghanistan

The Situation

After two decades in Afghanistan, the withdrawal of U.S. troops earlier this month resulted in a swift overthrow of the current government by The Taliban militant group, who had control of the country prior to that time.

The Taliban is known for their oppression of women and have a history of violence. Desperate to flee from The Taliban’s assumed power, locals were photographed trying to escape at the airport, some getting injured or losing their lives clinging to the outside of airplanes filled to capacity during take-off. 

Though some have made it safely to other countries, many still remain and those who are displaced are seeking refuge in places unknown to them in language and culture. 

Ways to Help

Since the beginning of the crises, several groups have mobilized to bring relief to the Afghan people. Here are some of the actions we can take around the world to help:

In addition to these actions, stay informed by reading updates from trusted news sources and verify the facts before sharing on social media. 

As an international community, let’s come together and offer our support, empathy and love to the people of Afghanistan.
