You will all be aware of the emerging nightmare scenario in Afghanistan where people are fleeing for their lives.

There is a huge humanitarian crisis looming as hundreds of thousands of people have left their homes and are in need of support. Some estimates put the number on the move at 500,000 or more, nobody is entirely sure at the moment. There are already more than 3 million Afghan refugees in Pakistan.

These people desperately need your help now.

Hope and Aid Direct are assessing local and regional partners who are on the ground and who will be able to provide humanitarian aid such as emergency food, shelter and water.

With COVID and a drought that is the worst for many years the need is huge. Please give all you can, your donation is so valuable, and our potential partners will make sure that everything we raise gets to those who need it the most.
