Humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan
Over half a million people have already been displaced by the violence in Afghanistan so far this year.
Some 80 per cent of nearly a quarter of a million Afghans forced to flee since the end of May are women and children.
This latest situation is only adding more suffering to an already tragic situation, in which over 5 million Afghans are displaced in the country and across borders.
UNHCR is on the ground to provide lifesaving care and protection to families in need of help.
