As the humanitarian crisis unfolds, everything from your airline miles to your time is needed.
Islamic Relief USA is cited as an organization helping Afghans in need in the following paragraph:
“Islamic Relief’s country office in Afghanistan has identified the capital city of Kabul and the provinces of Balkh and Nangarhar as areas in need of immediate support,” Islamic Relief USA said in a statement to Thrillist. ‘The organization’s aid efforts are focused in these areas, where a large number of internally displaced people (IDP) are fleeing to seek refuge. We have committed $1 million to the distribution of shelter, food parcels, water, and hygiene kits to IDPs in these regions to provide for immediate and basic needs. Additionally, in response to food insecurity and impact caused by COVID-19, a $1.5 million response is currently underway, aiming to provide food support to over 90,000 Afghans.'”
