Prince Rahim Aga Khan re-affirms AKDN’s commitment to the people of Afghanistan and calls for support for the UN’s humanitarian appeal

31 March 2022 – Prince Rahim Aga Khan affirmed the “unfailing commitment of the Ismaili Imamat and the AKDN to the people of Afghanistan,” at a virtual conference convened by UN Secretary General António Guterres and co-hosted by the Governments of Qatar, the United Kingdom, and Germany to address the country’s humanitarian crisis.

Speaking on behalf of His Highness the Aga Khan, Prince Rahim urged the international community to act swiftly to support the UN’s humanitarian appeal.

“Since August, despite huge challenges, in cooperation with UN agencies, the Aga Khan Development Network has maintained its life-saving work across Afghanistan: keeping its hospitals and clinics open; assisting communities with food, shelter and livelihoods; and continuing to help thousands of children of both genders to access learning. That is the sign of the unfailing commitment of the Ismaili Imamat and the AKDN to the people of Afghanistan.”
