As the situation in Afghanistan has continued to worsen, we’ve been in close contact with our partners on the ground and are constantly assessing how best to support them, as many of them are fleeing and others are staying and trying to keep their families alive. While we don’t want to overlook the devastation happening, we do want to trust God for His faithfulness amidst persecution. Many pastors throughout Afghanistan are reporting that the Taliban has told them they know where they are and are coming for them. Believers have been forced to try and find refuge in places they would not normally be, such as friends’ homes or any open space that can hold their families. It is very difficult, scary, and can, of course, put friends and family in danger.
When you donate to the Afghanistan Emergency Fund, your dollars will be directed to where they are most needed, and all funds will be used to directly aid Afghan people—both those inside the country and those who are fleeing to the surrounding countries. Because of the faithful generosity of people like you, Christ is known in these places where before he was not known, and we are so thankful to God for the opportunity to do this work together.
In addition to donating, here are a few others ways you can get involved today:
- 1. Start your own fundraiser that you can customize and share with your friends and family.
- 2. Share our Instagram post as an Instagram Story.
- 3. Share our Facebook page with your community & tell them why you gave to Urgent.
- 4. Talk to your friends and family about the urgent needs of people in Afghanistan, as well as around the world.
Join with us today and help get Afghan people to safety or to provide resources to those who are staying!
