Following the Taliban take-over in August of 2021, many peoples in Afghanistan are at risk of violence and persecution. Thousands of refugees crossed land borders into neighbouring countries like Pakistan seeking safety. Others are internally displaced and are in a perilous situation in Afghanistan. Recent reports suggest that half the remaining population of Afghanistan is struggling to find food and other basic necessities. Partners International is working in both Pakistan and Afghanistan to provide food, clothing, accommodations and other necessities to Afghan peoples. Our relief program also provides start-up funds and training for families to run a vegetable push-cart business. The individuals that have received the vegetable carts have begun to earn enough to support themselves and their families.
