Global Emergency Aid: Uniting Humanity
Our aim as a charity is to be the first emergency aid response unit on-the-ground universally, responding to emergencies such as famine, natural and man-made disasters or political disputes where suddenly humans are stripped of their rights and left exposed.
We aim to do this by coordinating emergency humanitarian relief, offering lifesaving aid as well as long-term assistance. We have already begun this mission in Afghanistan and to great success. With the continued support of the government and the British public, we know that we can make this it a reality to have offices ready for these emergencies worldwide.

Relief Efforts: Supporting Vulnerable Afghans
We have already established staff and on-the-ground volunteers who have worked tirelessly to provide lifesaving aid to the victims of the situation in Afghanistan, who have found themselves in a more than vulnerable position with the current political turmoil.
Since the Taliban takeover many have found themselves stripped of their basic human rights and are struggling to find sustainable ways to feed their families or guarantee their safety. Our crew offer aid such as food, water, money and clothes as well as longer term assistance such as online education, legal advice and housing aid.
We are always looking to expand our team of enthusiastic and committed volunteers.
Transformative Services: Empowering Afghan Communities
In 2013, we received funding from the UK’s Department for International Development to operate two citizens advice centres in Kabul and Pul-e-Khumri for two years. During that period, our centres provided free, confidential and often life-changing services.
We provided advice on a wide range of issues, helping those least able to access justice and rights, including women, young people, internally displaced people, returnees and the disabled. More than 6,000 people used our services, including 1,553 who received legal advice.
More than 500 women received legal advice in our first year alone, with the majority looking for help with divorce, domestic violence and forced marriage. The biggest single issue we help with is domestic violence, followed by unemployment, divorce, murder and poverty.
We took cases to court and ran family mediation services, and we also referred people to other non-governmental organisations, local authorities, ministries and health services where appropriate.
We ran sessions on promoting education for girls and boys, on maternal health, nutrition, diabetes, depression, women’s rights, disability rights, employment rights and the environment. We also ran a legal outreach service for women in prison and provided winter health checks for internally displaced people.
We’re raising money to reopen these centres and continue their life-changing work.
