Hope for Afghanistan.



What we are witnessing right now is the decimation of the country and people of Afghanistan. The Taliban are going door-to-door taking women and children. The people must mark their house with an “X” if they have a girl over 12 years old, so that the Taliban can take them. If they find a young girl and the house was not marked they will execute the entire family. If a married woman 25 years or older has been found, the Taliban promptly kill her husband, do whatever they want to her, and then sell her as a sex slave.


Husbands and fathers have given their wives and daughters guns and told them that when the Taliban come, they can choose to kill them or kill themselves—it is their choice.

Some women said they had no time to buy a burqa to comply with Taliban rules that women should be covered up and accompanied by a male relative when they leave the house.

"It is a perilous moment for Afghan women and girls," the institute wrote on its website. "Every day, the Taliban is gaining ground, assassinating women leaders, attacking girls at school, and rolling back women's rights in the process. We are running out of time to prevent the worst from happening."

 

If you are heartbroken over recent events in Afghanistan, here are some practical ways you can help and give to local ministries who are not fleeing even in the face of inevitable danger.


Support organizations working to help Afghan Women: Women for Afghan Women: This non-profit organization has been fighting for the rights of Afghan women for 20 years. Today, they are trying to help the women's rights activists they work with throughout the country who are in extreme danger from the Taliban. You can make a donation to support their critical work.


This unique, groundbreaking ministry is carried out almost entirely by nationals and former Muslims—some of whom were even terrorists, and are making disciples of Christ where no one wants to.

CARE: One of the world's largest humanitarian aid organizations, CARE has a long history of helping people in Afghanistan. In recent weeks, there has been a huge increase in the demand for emergency aid as many families have fled the Taliban. You can make a donation to support their humanitarian work in Afghanistan.


Learn more about the crisis. In order to understand the extent of the takeover and the impacts it will have on the country, it is important to educate yourself on its history and remain informed on how the situation unfolds. 


Bring awareness.

Use social media and your platforms to bring media attention to what is currently happening there.

Pray.

If you're a praying person, Pray! Pray for protection for those who are fleeing terror and those who are staying in the midst of it.
