14 million Afghans are at immediate risk of starvation

The desperation on the ground in Afghanistan is palpable. Food prices have soared, and sanctions and banking restrictions have debilitated the economy. Few people have steady employment and many have settled wherever they can find shelter or sustenance.

Our team of dedicated volunteers on the ground is working to feed impoverished families as part of our community nutrition program throughout Afghanistan.

Timeline + Impact

Our food aid efforts originated in Kabul Camp, a refugee camp in Nangarhar Province without any international aid support during the COVID-19 crisis

Alongside local elders, our team on the ground identified families at most risk for starvation

In April 2020, we distributed food aid packages that fed 2,852 people for a month until they were able to once again draw their livelihoods from the local economy

Wellness Worldwide launched the first post US withdrawal food aid distribution in the Dashte Badola area of Kabul on Tuesday, 24th of August 2021

Our existing infrastructure allowed us to be one of the first NGOs on the ground to provide assistance after the US withdrawal

To date, Wellness Worldwide has fed almost 10,000 people across the country during the current starvation crisis

Our work continues

Years of conflict, severe drought, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the recent economic collapse have resulted in catastrophic conditions for most Afghans.

We need to sustain our efforts and continue our Food Aid Program with your support.
