Afghanistan Refugee Crisis
The United State’s withdrawal of its armed forces from Afghanistan in late August 2021 gave way to an unprecedented humanitarian crisis. Thousands of Afghans, fearful of Taliban rule, fled the country.
Through CAF America, you can advise a grant in support of organizations working to provide direct relief, establish a fund to make a long lasting impact, or contribute to an already established fund.

Organizations Responding to the Afghanistan Refugee Crisis
UNICEF: Our plan is to scale-up assistance to reach nine million people by December; however, the UN agency is severely under-resourced and it needs $200 million to get us through to the end of the year to ensure food is where it’s needed when it’s needed.
Save the Children: We are providing vital items such as clothes for children, blankets, and household items to displaced families. Afghan children urgently need your help.
Breaking Barriers: To respond to the influx of Afghans to the UK in desperate need of integration support, we are looking to expand our programming to: Provide intensive one-to-one employment support with native and Pashto/ Dari speakers. Provide intensive English language support. Provide access to job opportunities with partner organisations, such as Bank of America, BNY Mellon and others. For the best chance of successful integration, as early an intervention as possible is vital.
International Refugee Assistance Project, Inc.: IRAP is advocating around the clock to bring as many people as possible to safety before it is too late. We are assisting Afghans who have already been evacuated to the U.S. Leading advocacy and communications efforts to keep the airport open in Kabul and maintain a troop presence there sufficient to evacuate as many allies as possible. Providing hundreds of Afghans with urgent case assistance and developing time-sensitive solutions for as many at-risk individuals as possible. Assisting individuals eligible for other pathways to safety, such as helping U.S. long-term permanent residents who are currently in Afghanistan obtain the necessary returning immigrant visas or boarding documents to return to the U.S. Elevating the concerns and requests of IRAP Legal Services and Litigation to the relevant Administration and Congressional decision-makers.
Australia for UNHCR: UNHCR will stay and deliver in Afghanistan. We are increasing our preparedness and support in Afghanistan and in surrounding countries. We are supplying emergency shelter, food, health, water and sanitation support and cash assistance, despite challenges in accessing people in need.
Refugee Council Of Australia: Advocating for action and new policies from the Australian government and working to aid refugees brought to Australia.
WeWorld Onlus: We are working to quickly activate humanitarian interventions with our local partners for the reception of Afghan refugees in neighbouring countries.
Maria Toorpakai Foundation, Inc: MTF continues to hold its ‘’Sports Awareness Campaign’’ every year in the most remote and conservative areas of Pakistan along the Afghanistan Border, where millions of girls are in dire need of guidance and support.
Women for Women International: We are conducting an emergency response in Afghanistan, running a fundraiser specifically focused on aiding Afghan women.
Urgent Action Fund: We are mobilising resources for women and non-binary activists in Afghanistan. Resources to support relocation, safety, protection, collective care and well being.
