Provide warmth to those in need in Afghanistan
It is -1°C in Kabul and thousands are without shelter or warmth. Winter has already killed many, with temperatures likely to fall further, especially at higher altitudes. The country is experiencing frequent, sometimes heavy, snowfalls, which has limited access to food markets and further endanger those with no access to warmth. The most vulnerable and food-insecure families in Afghanistan are being hit the hardest this winter. Not only are Afghans struggling with insecurity and conflict, but they are dealing with an increase in food prices, decrease in purchasing power, and large-scale unemployment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We need your urgent assistance to provide coal to communities in Afghanistan, especially those vulnerable to the cold. Over 500 widows and their families need an urgent supply of coal to keep warm this winter.
