Red Cross launches Afghanistan Humanitarian Crisis Appeal

Ottawa | October 07, 2021

The Canadian Red Cross has launched the Afghanistan Humanitarian Crisis Appeal to support those impacted by multiple humanitarian crises in the region.
 
Money raised will enable the Red Cross and Red Crescent in Afghanistan and in and around the region to provide support to people hit hard by multiple humanitarian crises. The support would include health care and relief supplies for individuals and families, displaced populations, and those experiencing food insecurity. Funds will also be used for immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long-term recovery, resiliency, and preparedness for future events in and around impacted regions, including consequential events related to the current crises.
 
Canadians wishing to make a donation to the Afghanistan Humanitarian Crisis Appeal can do so online at www.redcross.ca or by calling 1-800-418-1111.
