Afghanistan has suffered three deadly earthquakes in the last two weeks that have claimed the lives of more than 2,000 people. BTJ partners have been sending in videos and photos from the front lines. According to Unicef, more than 90% of those killed in this week’s earthquakes in Afghanistan have been women and children.
Most humanitarian organizations are helpless to provide aid, because the Taliban currently controls the nation, but BTJ missionaries have found several routes into the country.
The three major hurdles for doing aid relief in Afghanistan are workers, funding, and security.
The first hurdle is workers. Most organizations have found it difficult to get permission for their representatives to get visas to Afghanistan, but BTJ has found a way to get inside. BTJ has been able to get missionary workers into the country to carry out disaster relief right under the nose of the Taliban.
The second hurdle is funds. Banks will not send money to Afghanistan, even during times of disaster, but BTJ has found a way around this specific roadblock.
The third hurdle is security. Most organizations find it hard to guarantee the security of their workers if they do get them into the country, but the Lord has provided supernatural protection over the missionaries working in Afghanistan.
BTJ has already sent $20,000 USD in emergency aid to help provide food, blankets and shelter for the victims with a plan to send more.
