Story

Emergency Relief & Evacuation Support for Afghans

We are a group of volunteers collaborating with various organisations to aid Afghan citizens following the recent Taliban takeover. We are predominantly working to help Afghan women and men who are seen as targets by the Taliban: judges, lawyers, activists and those who have worked with foreign forces and organisations. Most of these families are still in hiding or moving locations every few days to escape the Taliban, most have run out of money to afford basic necessities: shelter, food, medicine, internet/phone credit.

To date, we have directly or indirectly assisted in the evacuation of 507 of these highly targeted individuals. We have transported pregnant women to hospital, delivered food, blankets, fuel, and life-saving medications to others, and organised emergency psychological help for those suffering from trauma, anxiety and depression.

100% of donations go towards the following:

1) Phone credit topped up via ding.com (or equivalent sites). **One month's phone credit costs $18**

2) Food and other necessities i.e. medicine if available, plus delivery fees. **Food & basic necessities (i.e. fuel, blankets) for a family of 4 costs around $300/month.**

3) Safe-houses and safe transport through reputable organisations working on the ground. **A safe house including food, security & transport for a family of 4 costs on average $3000/month**

4) Visas and passport application fees (**prices fluctuate depending on visa type**)

We cannot, for obvious reasons, promise to be completely transparent in respect of where the money goes. We can assure we will not pocket a penny of your donation and that it will be spent on keeping people safe and alive, and aiding their evacuation. If there is any money remaining, this will be donated to Plan International, who support women and girls worldwide https://plan-international.org

Thank you!

    Hi everyone, we have a little time to draw breath & want to thank you for your incredible support. We could not be doing what we are doing without your generosity. While we still can't share details with you, we can say that your donations are directly helping save lives and keep many Afghans safe and healthy in desperate circumstances. Our little group continues to work around the clock, finding ways to help in increasingly difficult conditions. We'd be hugely grateful if you could share our fundraiser if you feel able to do so. Thank you!

    Thanks to all you lovely people we have smashed through our original target and we are nearly 2/3s of the way to reaching our new one. We can’t tell you exactly how your money is being spent, but we can tell you that you are currently protecting lives. Thank you very much. We intend one day to be able to show you better evidence of what we are doing, when it is safe to do so for the people concerned. Your contribution is giving desperate people security, health and hope.
