We have compiled a list of relief organizations in Afghanistan. Please click here to visit the page with those resources, updated as of August 15, 2021. 

It is our hope that the resources and links below will be helpful to our Central Asian partners, as well as our volunteers. We are always on the look out for additional helpful information to include – so please feel free to suggest resources by contacting Lisa Herb at lisaherb@aiwr.org.
