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.

Please support our efforts.
