Welcome Back!

Last time you were here, you were looking to help vulnerable children and families. Your support can save and change lives.

More than 4,000 people have been killed or injured since 7 Oct 2023, after a series of 6.3 magnitude earthquakes struck north-western Afghanistan in the last week.

Since then, two more earthquakes have hit the region in the last couple of days. Our partners on the ground are sending updates daily, and we will continue to update this page with current information.

People living in Herat Province – where ChildFund Alliance has been collectively implementing a humanitarian program in support of women-headed households – are among those most affected.

The recent disasters come amid a severe humanitarian emergency in Afghanistan, where more than 24 million people – mostly women and children – have been facing a crippling and protracted food crisis since the Taliban’s takeover in 2021.

How you can help

Your donation is urgently needed to help our ChildFund Alliance partner, WeWorld, in Herat Province, provide:

  • Food and water, including cash assistance for families to buy the food and other essentials they need.
  • Emergency shelter such as tents and warm goods to protect displaced children and families from the coming winter
  • Sanitation and hygiene kits to help keep children safe from illness and disease

    If you’re filing your tax return for the first time, have never claimed donations or donated at all, you’re probably wanting to know more about how you can claim donations to charity on your taxes. We’ve answered some of the most important questions about tax deductible donations below.

    Tax deductible donations are about giving back, to get back. Donating to ChildFund Australia will help children in urgent need of support. You’ll be helping the most vulnerable children across South East Asia and Africa, and you yourself will be able to receive a greater refund on your tax return.

    You can submit any tax deductible donation over $2 as part of your tax return.

    You can only claim for donations which are monetary gifts, given without the promise of something in return. Raffle tickets, charity chocolates, events and other donations of this kind, are not tax deductible.

    At ChildFund, all regular giving donations over $2 are tax deductible including child sponsorship, community sponsorship and donations to appeals. A few donation categories are not tax deductible, for example, birthday gifts to your sponsored child and are not included on your annual tax receipt.
