Action Against Hunger is supporting communities in Afghanistan, through our integrated programmes across nutrition, water, sanitation and hygiene, food security and livelihoods, and mental health and care practices.

Afghanistan

Conflict has impacted Afghanistan for 40 years, and Action Against Hunger has been providing humanitarian support for over 20 years.

COUNTRY OVERVIEW

Forty years of conflict in Afghanistan has had severe consequences, resulting in 2,640 people dead, 5,379 injured, and 471,000 internally displaced. The country needs are still great, the psychological impact on children and adults is major, as well as the need for shelter, food security and livelihoods. Overall, 3.3 million people now need emergency humanitarian assistance in Afghanistan, about 10% of the population.
