Crisis Appeal


Whole families have been displaced in the current crisis and informal settlements known as IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) camps, are now overrun with thousands of people fleeing the Taliban. They are left helpless and without shelter. Aschiana already has schools and a presence in these camps, they urgently need our help to acquire food, water, clothing and medicines to tend to these people who have nothing.

We need your help to continue our work, caring for the poorest children in Afghanistan, in the crisis which has left thousands of people trapped in appalling conditions.

If you can, please set up a regular donation.

Please give whatever you can afford.


Help these families in their time of extreme need.

If you have school-age children, ask the headteachers if they will consider supporting Friends of Aschiana UK as their charity for the year.

Help us with your creative fundraising ideas.

Get in touch to discuss more ways you can help.
