WAW News: Afghan Earthquake Emergency Relief Fund in Herat
On October 7th, two 6.3 magnitude earthquakes devastated parts of the Herat Province in Afghanistan, killing over 2,000 people and injuring thousands. To support the people of Afghanistan, WAW mobilized resources and initiated the Afghan Earthquake Emergency Relief Fund.
Your donations to this fund provided 335 families with tents, blankets, food, and hygiene, winterization, and cooking kits in Herat.

Women for Afghan Women (WAW) is a grassroots civil society organization dedicated to protecting and promoting the rights of disenfranchised Afghan women and girls in Afghanistan and the United States. In particular, WAW works to help Afghan women and girls exercise their rights to pursue their individual potential to self-determination, and to representation in all areas of life—political, social, cultural, and economic. WAW relentlessly advocates for women’s rights and challenges the norms that underpin gender-based violence to influence attitudes and bring about change.
