We are devastated by the heartbreaking humanitarian crisis unfolding in Afghanistan and remain committed to helping those impacted.

If you would like to provide assistance to those affected, we encourage you to consider the following options:

  1. Donate to or share the GoFundMe.org Afghanistan Relief Fund, which provides grants to verified nonprofits working to support those affected by this humanitarian crisis.
  2. Donate to a verified fundraiser that supports Afghanistan relief efforts. Our Trust and Safety team has verified the fundraisers listed on the above page and will continue to add verified fundraisers as more become available.
  3. Start a certified charity fundraiser for a verified organization providing critical support to those affected. A few we recommend are:
  • Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders
  • UNICEF
  • Concern Worldwide
  • Keeping Our Promise

Our Trust and Safety team is working 24/7 to diligently review every fundraiser created around the Afghanistan crisis to help ensure that we are acting in compliance with all laws and regulations, protecting fundraiser organizers and donors, and doing all we can to make certain that money raised is going to the right people. If you have already started a fundraiser, you can find more information about the review process here.

Thank you for taking action to help Afghan citizens in need. We’re constantly inspired by the kindness of our community. With you, we are committed to supporting those affected by the crisis in Afghanistan.
