In response to the ongoing drought in Afghanistan, the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) has launched a public appeal to support the ongoing humanitarian efforts by the Afghan Red Crescent Society (ARCS). All funds raised will be channeled towards the relief and recovery of affected communities, with a focus on mobile medical camps, emergency healthcare and medical equipment for the most remote areas.

The Red Cross will target the most vulnerable, and will prioritise women and female-led households, in particular those who have been widowed by the conflict, providing health care and income generation activities.

Severe droughts have badly hit Afghanistan and have created an extreme food crisis, with 13 million people urgently needing food, water and cash assistance to survive. More than 40% of the population face high-level of acute food insecurity.

The situation is further exacerbated by the ongoing pandemic and other complications already faced in Afghanistan, such as food insecurity, conflict, and high prices of basic commodities. These issues continue to disproportionately affect women and children.

Notes:
Donations to overseas efforts are not tax-deductible.

In the event that donations exceed the expenses incurred by Singapore Red Cross in this specific disaster response, any surplus or unspent money, after 3 years from the date of inception of the fund, can be used to prepare for and serve communities affected by other disasters.
