HERAT EARTHQUAKE RELIEF
In the wake of the recent devastating 6.3 magnitude earthquake that struck Herat, Afghanistan, we find ourselves in a heart-wrenching situation. The death toll has surpassed 2,000, and the Afghan people are burying their loved ones one by one. Thousands more are left with nothing as their homes have been completely destroyed and are in urgent need of assistance.
Recently, three of our staff members traveled to Herat to provide direct emergency relief to families and children who lost everything in the earthquake last month. AWAKEN raised over $13,000 to distribute funds to 172 families to purchase food, water, clothes, blankets, and tents. Our team was able to serve 8 different villages in Herat and over 1200 individuals benefited from the donation. We are grateful for our generous donors and dedicated staff for making it possible to provide this critical support to our neighbors in Afghanistan.
