Thousands of Afghans Need Urgent Help

The escalation of violence in Afghanistan has caused a major displacement crisis to erupt within the country. Hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians have fled the terror and are seeking refuge in the capital Kabul and surrounding provinces. It is estimated that 72,000 of them are children and are in urgent need of aid to survive.

The survivors of the attacks are suffering unimaginable trauma after witnessing their loved ones being killed and their homes being bombed. They are now left with nothing and are forced to sleep rough on the streets or in makeshift tents exposed to extreme weather conditions and in lack of food, clean water, and medication.

Our teams are on the ground right now distributing lifesaving aid to the victims including emergency food parcels, blankets, pillows, cooked hot meals, and powdered milk to new mothers. We are also setting up a mobile health clinic to provide primary health care and distribute necessary medication.

We need your urgent support to help us reach more people and save more lives, in sha Allah. Allah (swt) says, ‘Whoever saves one [life] - it is as if he had saved the entirety of Mankind’. [The Noble Qur'an, 5:32]

Please donate today and help us ease the plight of those suffering this dreadful nightmare.

A million pound vision for Afghanistan

MashaAllah, one anonymous donor recently contacted Muslim Hands to begin the groundwork for the largest Special Project in Muslim Hands history. Pledging a staggering one million pounds in financial support, this donor’s special project aims to provide clean drinking water to the population of Afghanistan.

The vision is to lay the foundations for the first step in bringing Afghanistan out of poverty. Young, old, male and female – everyone will benefit in sha' Allah. The project is expected to take approximately five years to complete, with the hope that by 2025, Afghanistan will start to break free from the cycle of poverty through its new-found blessings.
