Will you help us make sure the people of Herat get the emergency relief they need?

In just five days, three major earthquakes have rocked the Herat Province in Afghanistan, killing more than 2,000 people and injuring close to 1,700 according to the United Nations. The three 6.3-magnitude quakes — two on Saturday, October 7th, and another early on the morning of October 11th — and subsequent aftershocks have residents, already reeling from the ongoing political crisis and economic collapse, suffering the most precarious and difficult conditions. In one of the earthquake’s epicenters, the Zenda Jan district, every single home was destroyed.

The devastating earthquakes have destroyed at least 13 villages. The majority of the people killed and injured are women.

LEADO’s staff and board have already mobilized our resources to respond to the crisis. Our teams in Afghanistan have already distributed blankets and tents. The organization has also committed to providing families with humanitarian aid packages, including food, hygiene packages, and cooking kits.

We are currently responding to the needs of the survivors of the Herat earthquakes with funds from our existing Afghanistan operations budget, but desperately need your help to sustain these efforts.

Can we count on you to contribute and share within your networks?

We mourn the lives lost in a country which is already facing dire political, economic, and humanitarian crises. Thousands of families will need our help to rise beyond the aftermath of this catastrophic natural disaster.

Help us meet the needs of the families affected by the earthquakes. Support our Afghan Earthquake Emergency Relief fund.
