    Thank you! Your donations have enabled us to deliver emergency food supplies to more families displaced to remote villages in Bamyan province. Our team spent time talking to the families we supported and sent back interviews, which bring home the tough reality of life in Afghanistan right now and the impact of your support.

    Mohammad, pictured, fled his home with his eight children because of ‘fighting, insecurity and panic among the people’. Unable to find anywhere to live, he has worked to make a derelict building habitable. He told us his hopes were ‘that security and peace will come, then work and duty are created for the people and our children can go to school’.

    Masooma, pictured with her son, (see the Gallery) is one of the many women facing an unknown future, too frightened to leave the place where she is sheltering. Tahira another woman who received aid, repeated the thanks of everyone ‘The food you sent helped, please thank people for their assistance to the poor and needy people of Afghanistan. War and insecurity have ruined our homeland. If they can help us more, we need clothes, blankets, and food so that our children do not perish in the cold winter. Thank you.’

    Needs in Afghanistan are immense, but we know we can get aid to families. Please help us extend our networks by sharing our work so we can continue to help families survive the winter. If you would like more information, please email us communications@reliefaid.org.nz

    Great news! The first delivery of our emergency food kits, designed to support a family of six for a fortnight, have reached 115 families displaced from their homes in Bamyan Province. Fearing for their safety many families fled on foot or by donkey high into the mountains. It has been challenging reaching these remote areas and we are grateful to our networks on the ground for working day and night to make it possible. While families continue to live from day to day, your support has taken away the immediate worry of where their next meal will come from – thank you. We are committed to continuing to deliver emergency support, please help us if you can by sharing our work on your social media and with friends and family.

    ReliefAid’s emergency food distribution is under way. Displaced Afghan families wait patiently to collect ReliefAid’s emergency food supplies. Given the uncertain situation in Kabul, our aid delivery has required a unique approach. Families most in need are identified and given details of where to collect their food supplies. Our team check identification prior to and during collection. Thanks to your support these vital food supplies will provide welcome relief.

    Families displaced by conflict in Afghanistan have moved into tent cities such as this one in Kabul. People fled their homes with little more than the clothes on their backs. Thanks to the incredible donations from Kiwis, our team on the ground in Kabul are delivering rice, oil and beans to families this weekend. To see so many Kiwi families helping Afghan families is brilliant, please share this with your whānau, friends and colleagues so they can also help us get more food to those who need it so badly. Some Afghan families literally don’t know where their next meal is coming from.
