A Moment to Act: the Humanitarian Crisis in Afghanistan
Even before the coalition withdrawal in August 2021, Afghanistan was enduring a drought, ongoing conflict, political instability, and a pandemic. The events of the last several months have exacerbated existing vulnerabilities and created a brand new crisis in the form of an economic collapse. Afghanistan is now facing one of the most pressing and avoidable humanitarian disasters of our time. This panel sought to discuss conditions on the ground, highlight channels for relief and aid that are proving effective, and explore how the world can and should act.
MPAC and the Afghan-American Foundation hosted a 4 day virtual summit to discuss key issues relating to the crisis in Afghanistan and its impact in the United States. Empowering Afghans: Reframing the Narrative and Providing Support is a summit designed to elevate leading Afghan and Afghan-American voices. We identified tangible solutions and highlighted organizations doing critical response work in the United States and Afghanistan.
