What we're doing

War and disorder have made life in Afghanistan extremely difficult.

Oxfam has supported projects here for decades, making a real difference to Afghan communities even during Taliban rule. We work with local partners to tackle a wide range of issues, from helping women gain more independence to providing clean water and sanitation facilities for people in Kabul and Kandahar.

We also work with vulnerable communities caught up in emergency situations. And we continue to campaign for change in Afghanistan, whether this means providing greater protection for citizens or helping to create more stability. And when it comes to change, our experience here already shows it is possible.
