Children in Afghanistan

Afghanistan is on the brink of a humanitarian catastrophe. This winter, 23 million people face food insecurity and possible famine. As prices skyrocket, families cannot access cash to pay for food, medicine or other basic necessities.

The U.S. government must address the economic drivers of this crisis to prevent further suffering and save lives. Urge the current Administration to facilitate banking access for Afghans and find new ways to support the country’s critical services like hospitals, schools and utilities.  

The United States must remain committed to the people of Afghanistan and act now as millions of lives remain in jeopardy. Raise your voice now to help our Afghan sisters and brothers!
