Toowoomba Interfaith Community Supporting Afghanistan

As you would be aware, the unfolding situation in Afghanistan is rapidly deteriorating and the country is on the verge of a devastating humanitarian catastrophe.

More than 600,000 people have been newly displaced in Afghanistan since January 2021 and this crisis will lead the new displacement within the country as well as the neighbouring countries and beyond.

The UN has warned that without a significant de-escalation in violence, Afghanistan is on course to witness the highest ever number of documented civilian casualties in a single year since the UN’s records began.

UNHCR, as part of the broader UN country team and lead in protection and emergency shelter in Afghanistan, is well prepared to stay and deliver humanitarian assistance and support to the Afghan people in a complex, dynamic and challenging security environment.

Frances Holmes has joined the team at UNHCR as a volunteer along with leaders of Toowoomba Interfaith Community represented by Bishop Cameron Venables to assist with running a fundraising dinner to raise much-needed funds to support the Afghani people on Saturday,  November 6th at the Cathedral Centre in Toowoomba.

Our Afghan community are devastated. They have offered to prepare an authentic Afghani dinner for attendees and share the hope for the future of their beloved country.

“At a time where the effects of the pandemic is devastating our country, let’s focus on what we can do – Help provide food and shelter for the refugees who have lost everything – Please help.”
