Humanitarian Crisis in Afghanistan

At least 124 people died in freezing temperatures in Afghanistan in the past fortnight, BBC News reports.

About 70,000 livestock have also perished in what is the coldest winter in a decade.

Many aid agencies suspended operations in recent weeks after the Taliban banned Afghan women from working for non-governmental organizations.

Afghanistan is experiencing its coldest winter in a decade.

This is a humanitarian crisis. There is something everyone can do. Aslan Child Rescue Ministries is making a difference. “Aslan” has made a contract to supply flour to a bread bakery in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. The bakery is giving away 800 loaves of bread every day. This feeds the most needy: Afghan widows and disabled people.

Aslan also gives firewood and blankets, as donations come in, through its agreement with the Hazara Foundation. For the love of God, make a donation that will help people in need.
