After 20 years of American military engagement in Afghanistan, the Taliban
seized control of Kabul last year after the tumultuous exodus of Western
diplomats and the Afghanistan national government. Unsettling video captured at
the Kabul airport, hauntingly resembling the American evacuation of Saigon,
showed Afghanistan seeking to board departing American aircraft while
diplomats abandoned the American embassy. According to critics, the “safe
and orderly” evacuation promised by President Joe Biden, who stated on July
8 that there was little risk of a Taliban takeover, is everything but the
humanitarian catastrophe that is currently unfolding.
Soon after, President Ashraf Gani left the nation, and the Taliban quickly
came into power. Afghanistan residents fear a return to the violent Taliban
dictatorship of 1996–2001, when stonings and public killings were routine
and religious and ethnic minorities were persecuted. Under the Taliban,
women were routinely discriminated against, forced to rely on male
chaperones whenever they left the house and denied access to education.
Thousands of Afghanistan have left their nation amid the recent instability. All
commercial flights have been cancelled, leaving many people detained in the
nation who had been promised asylum overseas or were waiting for visa
approvals. Nearly half of Afghanistan’s population, or up to 18 million people,
is thought to require immediate humanitarian relief, including food and
What is Mosaic?
To help Afghanistan’s many ethnic communities, Mosaic Afghanistan was
founded in 2022. In Afghanistan, we work to advance human rights.
Why only Mosaic?
Since the Taliban took control of Kabul on Sunday, numerous organisations
have made emergency humanitarian appeals. Major international NGOs are
looking for funding to support their front-line work in the nation, including
the UN Human Rights Committee, the International Rescue Committee, and
the International Committee of the Red Cross.
Anywhere around the world, you may show your support because there are
appeals in place. While the U.K.-based charities Afghanistan aid and Turquoise
Mountain have established crisis funds, the Australian organisation Baba
Mazari Foundation has pledged to provide $100,000 in immediate aid to
internally displaced people.
The current conflict is being improved in several specific ways by other
organisations. Ehtesab, an Afghanistan startup, is extending its system to give
citizens real-time security updates. International Media Support, a Danish
organisation, is requesting funds to aid Afghanistan journalists who may be
particularly susceptible to Taliban attacks. For those who have a valid reason
to travel but cannot afford the prices, Miles4Migrants accepts donations in
the form of air miles.
A large number of smaller crowdfunding campaigns have also popped up
online in the last week. For example, this campaign, run by a German human
rights activist, collects essentials to be distributed by regional charities on
the ground, and this fundraiser, started by filmmaker Kyber Khan, provides
immediate cash assistance. Other networks concentrate their efforts on local
volunteers assisting vulnerable families, such as this campaign run by
Afghanistan activist Samira Hamidi.
Before making a donation, be sure you are sure it will be used where it is
needed. To assist people in making informed decisions about their giving,
the non-profit network AFG Diaspora Hub has compiled a list of verified

kept up their coverage of the conflict. In order to support its journalists,
