Thousands of vulnerable people in Afghanistan’s capital city are receiving desperately needed food aid from Islamic Relief.
Afghanistan is in the grip of a humanitarian crisis triggered by drought, conflict, Covid-19, political change. With an economic crisis looming, conditions are expected to deteriorate still further.
Many people do not know where their next meal is coming from. Food has been running out and food prices skyrocketing. Finding work is increasingly challenging. This has led to an increase in malnutrition, particularly among women and children.
In response to this dire situation, Islamic Relief are distributing food packages to particularly vulnerable people in the capital city, Kabul.
Our food packages contain staple items such as flour, oil, rice and salt. Distributions began on 10 October and will reach almost 5,500 people, many of whom fled to Kabul with little more than the clothes they were wearing.
