The deadliest earthquake in decades rocked Afghanistan, killing over 1000 people and injuring more than 1500 others.


The people of Afghanistan were already facing a crisis with global food shortages.


Loved ones are digging through the rubble to rescue their friends and family members, while thousands more are waiting for medical help.


Our team is already on the ground distributing aid to those in need: food, water, first aid kits, and more.

Your support means that the people of Afghanistan are not left to their own devices amidst this humanitarian crisis.


They need our help now more than ever.



HCI needs your support to help earthquake-affected families by addressing their basic food needs. Each family shall receive a food pack consisting of:

  • 15 kg wheat flour
  • 5 kg rice
  • 3 kg sugar
  • 3 liters edible oil
  • 2 kg Daal Moong (Green Gram)
  • 2 kg Daal Channa (Bangal Gram)
  • 1 kg Black Tea
  • 1 kg iodized salt

Also, families whose houses are damaged shall get weatherized tents with the following specifications:

  •  4×4 meters (12×12 feet) ground size double fly tent
  • Tarpaulin (top) and cloth (beneath)
  • Weight: 34 kg (with bamboo)
  • Waterproofing
  • Wooden tent pegs
  • Groundsheet




In any emergency situation, HCI follows these steps:

  1. Conduct a needs assessment which will determine the extent of the disaster, what the people affected need in the short and long term, and who exactly HCI can help.
  2. Begin the first phase of relief titled Emergency Relief, which is the provision of basic necessities, such as food and water, hygiene items, andtemporary/transitional shelter setups (e.g. tents). In this phase we also provide basic health assistance through the provision of medical supplies and/or medicine.
  3. Begin the second phase of relief titled Early Recovery, which involves (re)building of permanent housing and providing cash assistance so that families can return to their homes, and children can return to school.
  4. Begin the third phase of relief titled Community Development, which involves investing in restoring health systems, providing psychosocial support and trauma relief, and working with the community to rebuild infrastructure and social systems.

In general, HCI’s admin fee on an annual basis is 10-15%. In emergency crisis situations, we may declare 0% admin.

No we cannot do this. We also cannot accept a list of people to help. This is against CRA rules and regulations for how a charity should operate.

We first begin with our needs assessment and start phase one as quickly as possible. Funds are sent based on the reports we receive from the ground. Our intention is not to hold on to funds, but rather to make sure that before they are sent, there is a proper plan for distribution in place. For this reason, we cannot give an exact timeline, but we try to get the funds out as soon as possible.

We believe in working hand in hand with the local community. For this reason, we may often rely on the expertise of a local NGO to conduct the needs assessment, provide us with feedback, and carry out the distribution on our behalf. These are NGO’s that are well established and have a track record for implementing humanitarian aid projects.

HCI regularly publishes impact reports and provides them to the public. Also, donors to a specific campaign are sent these reports directly once they’re made available. You can visit for reports on Ramadan, Qurbani, Winter relief, and other emergencies.
