GRAPPLING WITH POVERTY
Basic living standards in Afghanistan are among the lowest in the world, and now that it’s winter the challenges are worse. A startling 55% of the population lived below the poverty line in 2017—and most are severely impoverished. The unemployment rate is nearly 25%.
WORKING TOGETHER FOR A BETTER AFGHANISTAN
Afghanistan also ranks at the bottom (168 of 189) of the U.N.’s global Human Development Index, which measures education, lifespan, and economy. Survival isn’t taken for granted: one in every 10 Afghan children born will die before age five.
The Islamic Relief family has been proud to serve Afghanistan for more than 20 years. Recently, IRUSA donors have supported a wide range of programs in Afghanistan, including:
- humanitarian relief
- orphan support
- women’s literacy…and more!
