About


Support Distribute Aid's vital work in the USA, helping Afghan families going through the US resettlement programme. 


As the year comes to an end, people around the world come together to spend time with friends and families in our homes. However, not everyone has the same opportunity for stability and safety, and that is particularly pertinent this year for families from Afghanistan. Distribute Aid is working within Fort Pickett to help manage a range of projects for families from Afghanistan being resettled in the USA. These include language classes, a woman's space, legal support, and various hobbies and sports sessions! We are managing all physical incoming donations to the base - which is currently over 1.3 million items! Please donate today to support our work!


Since 2019, Distribute Aid has helped to ensure that tens of thousands of Afghan Refugees, and hundreds of thousands of displaced and houseless people generally, across Europe have received vital aid. In 2021, we began working in the USA, where we have been supporting their Afghan resettlement project. Our core projects include running needs assessments for the activities at the base. These enable targeted collections and allow activities for the families there to continue in a sustainable manner. We are also implementing aid standards for collection and distribution which ensure items such as clothing are of a high and consistent standard so all of the beneficiaries receive good quality, suitable clothing! Beyond this, we have facilitated (and will continue to facilitate) in-kind donations from larger partners. By doing this, we ensure items such as sports equipment, school supplies, and the basic necessities for stable infrastructure are available for the people who need them!

All funds donated through this page will go directly towards buying supplies or paying for the shipping of donated goods. Distribute Aid covers its administrative and team costs through other means.
