The small girl dressed in red stepped up to the donation box, determination in her eyes. She did not have much money, just a few afghani that she was saving for car fare home. Instead, she would walk, and give her small sum to those displaced by the Taliban takeover of Kunduz City.

“Don’t put your money in there, you yourself are poor,” said a young man managing the booth. The girl was collecting paper and plastic trash on the streets — taking it home for her family to burn in the winter.

But she shook her head.

“No matter,” she said firmly. “Those people are in trouble. Some day we may be in trouble, and they will help us. Businessmen with lots of money should be ashamed that they are not helping more.”

If there is a bright side to the fighting and violence in the North, it is the outpouring of support for the victims, even among the poorest of Afghans.

Two weeks ago, the Taliban attacked Kunduz City, and with a small but fierce force drove out the Afghan security forces and raised their flag over the central square. The city is now back under government control, but enormous damage was done. Thousands of residents were displaced, and many others had their homes destroyed. Now those people are in Kabul, Balkh, Takhar and other provinces, trying to survive.

Afghans all over the country, and even some abroad, have rallied to the cause; they want to help the victims of Kunduz regain some normalcy in their lives.

Hekmatullah Shadman, a resident of Kandahar province, is providing food, clothing and shelter for hundreds of those displaced from Kunduz. He has rented an entire apartment building in Kabul, big enough for 1800 people.
“We now have 600 displaced people from Kunduz with us,” said Shadman, in an interview with Tolo News.“We welcome the displaced people and provide them with every kind of facilities such as food, clothes, doctors,etc.”

Many organizations around the country have begun their own aid campaigns for the people of Kunduz..They are collecting money and supplies for those who have lost everything.

“Our people in Kunduz need help, let’s help them by providing lunch, at least,” reads this post by a man appealing to a group of friends.

In Nangarhar, people pitched tents, set up donation boxes and had cars driving around town collecting aid.

One elderly woman, unable to give anything else, brought her own household equipment as aid to those displaced from Kunduz.

No matter how poor people are, or how far they are away from Kunduz, they seem able to feel the pain of those affected by the war.

One elderly man, who cleans streets in Kabul, making no more than 5000 afghani per month, still spares a few afs for the people of Kunduz.

Children in Zabul province also tried to help: they started a campaign to help those affected by war in Kunduz.

The campaign to help the victims of Kunduz has also spread abroad. Afghans who are living in London are appealing to Muslims around the world.

 Hayat Foundation had a general fundraising for Kunduz affected people today at An- Noor Masjid , Harrow,…

Some Afghans are working through social media.

In Pul-e-Khumri, capital of Baghran Province, which borders Kunduz, residents have begun their own assistance campaigns.

Even the youngest Afghans are doing their best. This small boy who sells cookies and candy on the streets  of Nangarhar, wants to help.
