Afghanistan is facing a worsening humanitarian emergency with the economy near collapse and about half the population now reliant on aid. There are more than 3.5 million people displaced by conflict inside the country, including some 700,000 forced to flee this year alone. With winter fast approaching, temperatures in the capital are already reaching close to 0°C at night and may dip to as low as –25°C in mid-winter, putting those sleeping outside at risk of hypothermia.
You can now direct your Zakat and Sadaqah donations to support the most vulnerable internally displaced families in Afghanistan. Every AED 3,379 of Zakat funds received allows one vulnerable family to cover their immediate needs for an entire year. Providing cash assistance will enable families to pay for rent, food, water, medicine, and debt repayments. Your Zakat funds can also support emergency core relief items such as shelter, sleeping mats, kitchen sets, and essential items.
