Imminent humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan

As fighting spreads in Afghanistan, more and more vulnerable families are being forced to flee.

Some 270,000 people have already been displaced by the violence this year. This latest crisis 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. Please support our efforts.
