Help Save Children in Afghanistan

Afghan children have known nothing but conflict their entire lives.

Right now, the situation for children in Afghanistan is dire, with at least 75,000 having had to flee their homes in the last months amid escalating violence. Even before the Taliban takeover, Afghanistan was crippled by hunger and poverty; as COVID-19, conflict, and drought combined to create a food crisis of a scale not previously seen.

Save the Children has been helping in Afghanistan for over 40 years, and we’re not going to stop now.

As the United States begins welcoming newly arriving Afghan refugees, Save the Children has mobilized to meet their most urgent needs. We are also urging the U.S. and other countries to continue to support safe access for humanitarians to deliver aid.

Let’s bring our friends and family together and fundraise for the children of Afghanistan. We’re stronger together!

Why we fundraise

Dancing to Heal the World

Ongoing conflict in Ethiopia’s Tigray region has displaced more than 1.7 million people. Beile and her children: Senai, Abiah and Danait decided they needed to help. The children performed their own dancing and singing routines to collect donations and raised $650. "The sweetest thing they did," smiles Beile, "is that they had piggy banks with some coins, and they emptied them into the fundraising jar before they started asking for donations from others."

Honey Helpers: Teen and Bees

Rico is a rising high school senior and an experienced beekeeper who put his honeybees to work. Inspired by Save the Children's work in Ukraine, Europe's largest honey producing country, Rico raised more than $5,000 by giving each donor a jar of his summer honey harvest. 100% of the donations went directly to Save the Children's Emergency Relief Fund.

"If even the humble honeybee can help Save the Children, then surely each of us can too," says Rico.

4 Wheels, 4 Paws, 4 Good

COVID-19 had many repercussions for U.S. families, including, for some, their first experience with hunger. Mark Roberts decided to take action. Mark went on an 8-week journey across Massachusetts in his electric wheelchair with his dog and wife. They rolled to raise awareness and more than $100,000! "I have to say that I had so much fun, learned so much about so many people from across the political and economic spectrum. My Roll/Stroll restored a bit of my faith in humanity," says Mark.

Tessa Bakes for Ukraine's Kids

Tessa, from Connecticut, raised $2,000 for Save the Children's Ukraine Relief effort and is proud to help the children there as they try to stay safe during the war. Tessa says, "Helping others is a gift, not only to them, but to yourself, knowing that you are doing good for the world." Tessa wanted to send a message that people should be grateful for what they have and do what they can to help others. Tessa used her passion for baking to support children in Ukraine by baking scratch-made apple tortes.

Middle Schoolers Hike4ACause

Students at Magellan Middle School started "Hike4ACause" to raise money to help Afghan refugee children. Students were asked to get a sponsor to pay them for each mile hiked. 70 students hiked 538 miles raising $6,387.96!

"We are very grateful for the opportunity our community had to make a meaningful contribution to the lives of young refugees," said Nicolas Puga.
