Update #1

A big thank you to everyone who has shared and donated this fund. The show of support for those people involved in tourism and small-scale media creation in Afghanistan has been overwhelming. The funds have allowed us to start arranging support for those affected by the regime change in Afghanistan.

We have managed to support and action the wishes to leave Afghanistan for some of the guides and fixers most at risk. Some of the most prominent guides, who have featured in news media reports and/or have organized sports events for women who were especially vulnerable, have now left Afghanistan for their safety. This includes Afghanistan’s only female tour guide. 

We are also in the process of sending small cash payments for others who have worked with international tourists and small-scale media creators, to help them financially during this time of upheaval. Additionally, we have also committed to donate 10% of this fund to Afghan Aid as part of the wider humanitarian assistance.

However, the future is still very unknown for ALL of these people. We continue to assist and advise those who have left their homes with just the clothes on their back, as well as offering candid and practical support, advice and options for those still in Afghanistan, who face an uncertain future. Please support us to support these people through donations and sharing this fundraising effort.
