Together, We Keep the Spirit of #AfghanWomenStrong Alive

Thousands of Afghan refugees and evacuees need our help to settle into their new lives in the US.

Much work needs to be done.


For over 20 years, Women for Afghan Women (WAW) has been a lifeline for women and families in Afghanistan and the United States. We have made over 1.6 million lives better through our programs.


Our mission began as both a response to a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and as a way to empower and support Afghan refugees in the United States (US).

Two decades later, here we are again facing another major humanitarian crisis. In the past six months alone, we have witnessed a 300% increase in requests for our services and programs in the US after the NATO troop withdrawal and the fall of the Afghan government in 2021.

Can you help us ensure that refugee and evacuee women, children, and families receive culturally appropriate and immediate support?

Your donations help WAW quickly respond to critical cases. Last year, you helped us support a family of four, who ranged from 14 to 25 years of age. This family recently arrived in the US from Afghanistan. When WAW connected with them, they had run out of money. They had not eaten in four days. And, they could not afford one more night of shelter.

WAW's caseworkers immediately booked one month of temporary housing for the family, and processed a direct cash assistance check for them. A volunteer helped secure food for the family and helped them move to their new, temporary housing where they were safe and together as a family.

Please donate to help us support more Afghan refugee families arriving in the US.

Your fully tax-deductible donations to WAW helps us respond to this humanitarian crisis.
