5 Direct Ways To Help In Afghanistan

The humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan that was sparked by the U.S.’s withdrawal of troops has only intensified in recent days, with the Taliban taking control of Kabul and millions of Afghan people attempting to flee for their lives. At a time like this, there’s no “perfect” way to get involved, but any direct action could potentially save lives; all you can do is pick a cause or issue and donate whatever funds, time, or other resources you have available. Below, find a roundup of ways to help the people of Afghanistan as many flee and more are left behind in a country engulfed in chaos.

Pitch in for basic necessities for Afghan refugees

Refugees are currently taking shelter in the few remaining parts of Afghanistan deemed “safe,” and WorldHelp is collecting donations to get them food, water, and other basic necessities.

Assist Afghan refugees in getting settled in the U.S. 

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is organizing volunteers to help with airport pickups, meal assistance, tutoring, and more for recently arrived Afghan refugees in Seattle/Tacoma, Houston, Forth Worth, and the D.C. metro area; if you live in or near one of those areas, you can get on their standby list here, or donate to help their cause.

Make sure Afghan women are protected 

Women for Afghan Women is the largest women’s organization in Afghanistan, and it provides services, education, and vocational training for women in Afghanistan and the U.S. who have been the victims of human rights abuses. You can donate to help with their mission here.

Familiarize yourself with the Malala Fund

Malala Yousafzai is no stranger to the threat of Taliban rule in Afghanistan, and her fund helps support, protect, and educate local girls and women so their future can look as bright as hers.

Donate airline miles to help get Afghan people to safety

If you want to help provide aid to the Afghan people but don’t currently have the funds to do so, consider donating airline miles to the organization Miles4Migrants, which donates miles to individuals who have been approved to travel but cannot afford airfare.
