Our Christmas Appeal for 2021 is to raise funds in support of the Afghanistan Crisis.
Decades of a refugee crisis have resulted in nearly six million Afghans forcibly displaced from their homes. TheTaliban’s recent takeover of the government has severely compounded the crisis., forcing hundreds of thousands to flee from their homes and tens of thousands in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. Baptist World Aids response is to meet the immediate needs of displaced
families in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Our local Christian partners are poised to provide critically needed emergency supplies including monthly food aid, blankets, mattresses and plastic sheets for winter protection.
390.000+ people displaced since May 2021
80% are women and children – the majority of those fleeing are the most vulnerable and at risk.
Covid 19 has compounded the crisis by overwhelming the already fragile health system.Carlingford Baptist Church is running a Christmas appeal for BWA for the situation in Afghanistan which will run until the end of January. Please prayerfully consider what you might be able to give to help this crucial work.
