We are here—no matter what

The devastating crisis in Afghanistan has forced over half a million Afghans—including thousands of our clients, staff, and their families—to flee seeking safer refuge.

We are humbled by the outpouring of donations we have received in response to this urgent need and crisis.

Women for Afghan Women (WAW) has been working on the ground in Afghanistan for over twenty years to improve the lives of Afghan women, children, families, and communities—and we are determined to employ every resource we have to continue our critical humanitarian work.

At this moment, WAW has made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend part of its operations and programs in Afghanistan. However, we are continuing many essential services and are continually monitoring the situation so that we can extract our more high-risk staff from Afghanistan. We are working day and night so that we can get back to serving the women of Afghanistan, however we can, and as soon as possible.

At the same time, an unprecedented wave of new Afghan refugees have already arrived in the US and will continue to do so. We are here to greet them, to help them overcome the trauma of their displacement, and to rebuild new lives as they transition to safety and freedom. We will be there for them until they can stand on their own.

Much still needs to be done. Help us keep the #AfghanWomenStrong spirit alive.

Your fully tax-deductible donations to WAW will help us respond to this devastating humanitarian crisis. Help us keep our people safe.
