Even though the country is no longer on the front page every day, the situation in Afghanistan is still bad. Food is expensive and many women and men have too little money to take good care of themselves and their children. Village of Peace helps – in the long term, but also when the need is great. Will you help distribute food parcels?
Yes, I would like to participate and make a donation.
The situation in Afghanistan is still very difficult. The country is struggling with political turmoil, has a fragile economy and suffers from the many attacks – now the corona crisis makes matters worse. Because of the lockdown many families are now without income. And no income means no food. Many parents find it difficult to feed their children every day.
“We want to help those poor families in the refugee camps now. So that if they don’t die from corona, these people won’t die of hunger.” Afghan team member during the preparations
Our first phase of reaching out has had lot of impact:
In 2020 we already took action to support vulnerable families. Thanks in part to all previous donations, our Afghan teams were able to distribute more than 1500 food packages with enough food for a month. In addition, the teams were able to help more than 1000 children in malnutrition with special diet (RUTF) nutrition. They did this in close collaboration with the government, so that the packages reached the families who needed it most.
Food for over a thousand families.
Respect and goodwill for our teams and help from the West.
Good relationship with local government agencies. They are very pleased with the teams and their approach.
A glimpse of hope in uncertain times for Afghan families in need.
Yes, I want to help an Afghan family in need.
A food package costs approximately 75 euros per family, but every amount counts!

They already received a food package – thank you!
This widow was forced to leave her hometown when her husband died in an attack. She ended up in Mazar-e-Sharif, in the Rustam Abad Camp refugee camp. She has to care and provide for five children. One child is ill. She was injured when a rocket hit the neighbor’s house. Since surgery was too expensive, there is only basic medical care in the public hospital. “I never thought I should beg, but I do now. My kids don’t complain about the dry bread we eat, but I find it very difficult. I’ve been here for a month now and haven’t received any support from the government or anyone else.”
Zulaikha lost her husband and two sons from an attack. Looking for a safer place, she fled to Mazar-e-Sharif. She now lives in a tent with eight family members. “I pray for warm weather every day so that no one gets sick. I left my home on the run from the violence, but hunger is now a bigger enemy.”
