In 2021, drought, conflict, high inflation and COVID-19 have gripped the already struggling country forcing even more people to become displaced and hungry. Today, one in three Afghans are experiencing crisis levels of food insecurity. And, with the upcoming winter, these numbers are only expected to rise.
ADRA is helping provide internally displaced people with food and heating so they can survive the Afghan winter.

On Saturday 14th August, Haiti was struck by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that destroyed homes and caused widespread destruction. A 5.2 magnitude aftershock caused further damage. Over 1,200 people have died and thousands were injured and are now homeless. ADRA is on the ground providing relief. Plans are being made to distribute food, water, hygiene items, and tent tarpaulins to affected families. ADRA is also collaborating with a nearby Adventist hospital to assist those who were injured.
