On August 15, 2021, Afghanistan once again came under Taliban rule. The situation is causing uncertainty about the country's economic and social future.

 

The cost of food has increased exponentially. Staples such as cooking oil and flour are difficult to find. Many citizens are still trying to flee the country.

 

What you can do

  • Pray for the people of Afghanistan, including vulnerable women and children, and the many partners with whom MCC works. Pray that hope would not be extinguished during this season of uncertainty and fear. Watch and share the prayer video below on YouTube.

 

 

  • Advocate: We recommend this website resource from Refugee Council USA entitled “Ways Americans can directly support vulnerable Afghans abroad and in our communities,” as well as this UNHCR website listing U.S. resettlement organizations.
