On Wednesday 22nd June, a powerful earthquake struck near Khost in southeast Afghanistan. Hundreds of people have been killed and many more injured.

This has come on top of a very difficult year for the people of Afghanistan – many had already lost their homes and the recent drought means millions were already facing severe hunger.

CARE is working in the earthquake-affected area. We are providing emergency relief supplies and have sent a mobile health unit to help those who are suffering. We are working to scale up our response as quickly as possible.

Donate now to provide emergency and medical supplies to vulnerable families in Afghanistan.
