|Mere end 88.000 Avaaz-medlemmer valgte ikke at se væk og donerede generøst til at yde afgørende humanitær hjælp til dem, der havde mest brug for det.|
I dag vil Avaaz-teamet dele et par historier om, hvad partnere på stedet har opnået siden da. Takket være den generøse støtte fra Avaaz medlemmer har vi sammen:
Helped fund crucial medical aid in hospitals, including treating more than 12,000 malnourished children in 2022, performing more than 13,000 surgeries, helping more than 35,000 women give birth safely.Supported more than 43,000 people with emergency cash transfers and food.Distributed hygiene kits to around 4,000 families. Helped 1,500 small farmers, more than half of them women, to improve the long-term health and productivity of their livestock activity. Supported around 900 women and families with trainings in drought mitigation and employment programs.

|Avaaz donations helped thousands of people to survive, it’s as simple as that. But there’s more: together we’ve been transforming people’s lives. People like Masoma, who now runs a successful dairy business and who told us:|
“I am very happy that I can stand on my own feet with the help of Avaaz and their partner, Afghanaid*. They taught us everything necessary in the shortest amount of time to make a sustainable income, and I am very thankful.”

Masoma lives in the rural, mountainous Daykundi province of Afghanistan, where 60% of the population regularly don’t have enough to eat. But thanks to Avaaz donations, our partners on the ground were able to train Masoma and 99 other women in the region in dairy production, and give them all the skills needed to set up or expand their own small business. Not only can Masoma now expect to triple her monthly income, but she has also become a role model for women and girls in her community who are inspired by her confidence and newly-gained independence.

Afghanistan continues to experience one of the worst humanitarian crises in the entire world. But thanks to the generosity of our members, our amazing partners have been able to spark a glimmer of hope over the past two years throughout some of the most impacted regions of the country.With hope and gratitude,
Barbara, Alis, Ana-Sofia, Mat, and the whole Avaaz team
