Run for Ramadan - Afghanistan appeal

Run for Ramadan - Afghanistan appeal

Raised: $20,652

Target: $24,218

About this campaign

I’m Cherno and I’m the COO at Choose Love.

As well as refraining from eating and drinking, Ramadan is also a time of charity and giving back. 

This Ramadan, I'm running 150km whilst fasting for our Run for Ramadan Afghanistan Appeal, which will support our incredible partners providing essential services to those in and fleeing Afghanistan.

What will the funds be used for?

Funds raised during Choose Love’s Run for Ramadan campaign will be distributed to partners supporting Afghan people. Your kindness will help to fund:

·    Food baskets for displaced people

·    Essential medical supplies and care 

·    Support for newly arrived Afghan people as they rebuild their lives in the UK and US 

Why Afghanistan?

Last year, the Taliban took over the central government in Afghanistan, causing hundreds of thousands to flee the country, with millions more trapped inside. People living in Afghanistan are still to this day facing unthinkable circumstances and the world has turned away. 

The economy is on the brink of collapse, an estimated 23 million people are facing potentially life-threatening food insecurity. More than half of Afghanistan’s population (22.8 million) are experiencing acute food insecurity. UNICEF estimates that 3.2 million children in Afghanistan will suffer from acute malnutrition this year alone. 

We have seen with the situation in Ukraine that when we come together and act quickly, we can provide lifesaving services to those fleeing unimaginable circumstances. We cannot be selective about who deserves support and the lives of human beings share the same value. Everyone deserves the same compassion and no one should go without food. That’s why I’m fundraising. 

If you can, please support my fundraiser, donate, and share. 

Thanks so much,
Cherno

Hope you meet your target. It seems that many people have forgotten what we owe the Afghan people who worked for us.
