Afghanistan is facing the COVID19 pandemic with a fractured and impoverished healthcare system. Afghanistan has endured decades of war which has left millions of Afghans in dire situation. In the country’s very limited testing facilities and fragile health system, COVID-19 is gradually taking its grip which poses a major challenge to more than half of the population living under the poverty line. As cases of corona-virus spread, the government have introduced forcible lock-down across the country which simply means millions of poor Afghans losing their daily earning and thus unable to provide for their families.
The people of Afghanistan cannot wait, urgent relief is required to overcome the overwhelming spread of famine. This campaign is a symbol of unity in isolation, committed to provide those in desperate need with emergency food packs in the worst affected provinces in Afghanistan. This is a project like no other in the Afghan community. Our target is to raise a colossal 1 million pounds to reach the forgotten families in Afghanistan. A target that is attainable with your generous donations. We will bridge the online and offline world to lift thousands out of famine. The time to act is now!
