Many Afghan families suffer through the winter without warm clothes or heating fuel.

Harsh Realities in Afghanistan

One trial after the next has troubled the people of Afghanistan in the past several years. Since the Taliban came to power in 2021, the economy has crumbled, jobs are hard to find, and hunger is widespread.

Afghans face the onset of winter with fear. No doubt many remember the hunger and misery they endured during last year’s exceptionally bitter winter. Needing to stretch limited incomes for heating fuel, some sell basic household necessities to survive.

CAM works with trusted contacts to provide much-needed items like food, blankets, and winter clothing, as well as some sustainability projects. We wish we could do more to help meet the dire needs in Afghanistan, but are limited by available funds. One Afghan recipient said, “I was informed that this excellent help was sent to us by the Christian people. Please convey my message and thank them very much for not forgetting us.”
