The Bayat Foundation are appealing to you, the public, around the world, to help provide desperately needed humanitarian aid to as many Afghans as possible ahead of winter.

Bayat Foundation was established in 2006, and has helped deliver hope and support to the neediest and most at-risk Afghans over the years.

However, our support, with your help, is needed now more so than ever, as the combined shocks of drought, conflict, COVID-19 and an economic crisis in Afghanistan, have left more than half the population, an estimated 22.8 million people, extremely vulnerable and facing a record level of acute hunger.

Winter is fast approaching, which means that soon millions of people will be cut off from the world as snow and ice blankets large parts of the country.

So it is critical for us at Bayat Foundation to help relief efforts and get as much emergency aid to hungry people ahead of this fast approaching freezing winter.

Already we have successfully distributed thousands of food parcels to desperate families in Kandahar, Herat and Mazar-e-Sharif and we will continue to do so for as long as we can. (Read more here)

However, we rely heavily on members of the public and the private sector to help fund our initiatives and therefore appeal for cash donations.

Any donation, no matter how big or small, will go a long way to help feed hungry Afghans and stave off what experts have called a looming humanitarian catastrophe.

So, we appeal to you all, to please open your hearts and help us save lives as every penny helps.

Ariana News and Ariana Television fully support the Bayat Foundation’s initiative to raise funds to provide emergency aid to poverty-stricken Afghans. As official media partners we appeal to you to help provide food essentials to as many Afghan families as possible.

Pakistan’s foreign minister called on Saturday for a fresh effort to stop neighboring Afghanistan sliding further into crisis as he announced an extraordinary meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) later this month. 

The meeting of foreign ministers from Islamic countries will be held in Islamabad on Dec. 19, with delegations from the European Union and the so-called P5 group of the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China also invited.

“To abandon Afghanistan at this stage would be a historic mistake,” Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Hussain Qureshi told a news conference in Islamabad, warning that half the country was facing the risk of starvation that could trigger further chaos.

“Instability could give way to renewed conflict, it could trigger an exodus of refugees,” he said.

There have been growing warnings of the humanitarian crisis facing Afghanistan since international aid was abruptly cut following the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) takeover on Aug. 15 and fears of disaster if the situation is not brought under control.

However, getting help in has been hindered by sanctions on dealing with the IEA, the U.S. decision to freeze billions of dollars of central bank reserves held outside Afghanistan and the collapse of much of the country’s banking system.

Pakistan recently agreed to allow 50,000 tonnes of wheat to transit through its territory from India to help Afghanistan but aid agencies have warned that much more help is urgently needed.

Several European countries are working on opening up a joint diplomatic mission in Afghanistan that would enable their ambassadors to return to the country, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Saturday.

Western countries have been grappling with how to engage with the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) after they took power in Afghanistan in mid-August.

The United States and other Western countries shut their embassies and withdrew their diplomats when the previous government collapsed, following which the IEA declared an interim government whose top members are under U.S. and U.N. sanctions.

“We are thinking of an organisation between several European countries… a common location for several Europeans, which would allow our ambassadors to be present,” Macron told reporters in Doha before heading to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, Reuters reported.
