Focus on Afghanistan

Afghanistan’s refugee crisis is one of the biggest humanitarian crises our world has faced. More than four decades of conflict, instability, and ensuing chronic poverty has left an estimated 24 million Afghans in dire need of humanitarian assistance and driven more than 6 million people out of their homes. Women and children are among those most affected – they make up 80% of newly displaced Afghans. The fundamental rights of women and young girls are under threat and more and more children are out of school each day.

And now, Afghans face the risk of the worst winter in 15 years with temperatures as low as -29.2 degrees Fahrenheit. Unable to afford fuel, more than 160 people have died and children have been seen rummaging through a snowy field in Kabul in search of plastic to heat their homes.

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Afghans

Islamic Relief has served the Afghan community for more than 20 years, and has committed $2.1 million to help both families across Afghanistan and the 83,000 refugees newly arrived in the US. Through our regional offices and partner network, we are able to quickly and accurately assess the needs on the ground and provide immediate relief. We work hard to ensure your donor dollar goes as far as possible.


Together, with our regional offices in Kabul, Balkh, Herat, and Nangarhar, we are working to help provide those in need with the following:

  • Food packages including staple items like flour, rice, oil, and sugar
  • Essential non-food items such as hygiene kits, household items, and clothing
  • Emergency equipment such as family-sized tents


We are also teaming up with our partner network to help our new Afghan neighbors transition into their new homes through the following: 

  • Greeting orientations, transportation from the airport, and interpreters upon arrival
  • Cash, rental, and legal assistance
  • Hygiene kits and clothing 
  • Food boxes including items like flour, rice, oil, sugar, lentils, beans, salt, and green tea
  • Mental health and psychosocial support
  • Medical case management
