The basic needs of refugees, low-level medical assistance and visa assistance-some cryptocurrency users are the cause and effect mark of non-profit organizations and help the people of Afghanistan.
After the Taliban took over many sparsely populated areas, thousands of Afghans are currently accepted as refugees in many countries, and some non-commercial organizations have also accepted cryptocurrency donations.
Thousands, even millions, of Afghans are trying or are fleeing their targets, worrying about what the Taliban can do right now. Organizations serving refugees and the bottom people have announced that they have funds to support Afghans on foreign soil and usually have very little clothes on their backs.
Hearts & Homes for Refugees, a major grassroots non-profit organization headquartered in New York, is currently lining up to accept donations to help the approximately 20,000 Afghans who are still in the country waiting for US authorities to process special immigrant visas. The cluster hopes to raise enough funds to relocate Afghan families to Westchester County. It currently accepts Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Bitcoin currency (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), ZCash (ZEC), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), BAL, Yearn Finance (YFI), Floor Plan (MATIC), Synthetix (SNX) and Bancor (BNT) through integration with Giving Block.
CARE is an organization that advocates the rights of women and girls with offices around the world. The organization stated that 393,000 Afghans were displaced during the Taliban takeover and needed emergency assistance. Jack Butcher, the founder of consulting firm Visualizeworth, has launched a series of non-fungible tokens (NFT), or “care packages,” each of which is designed to be oversubscribed to match the organization’s calculable price. Cover the urgent needs of a family for one month.
Butcher mentioned that as of August 19, the proceeds of 0.028 ETH per NFT sale (totaling US$124,576) have continued to use CARE to help Afghans. At the time of launch, there were still 195 NFTs available for purchase in the market. Crypto users can even choose to buy 10 at a time for 0.28 ETH (approximately US$914) to help 10 families by late September.
Some organizations operating at the bottom of Afghanistan are actually still using social media and pretending to seek convenience. Code to Inspire is a university that educates Afghan women in coding and robotics. It is accepting cryptocurrency contributions through Giving Block. Founder Fareshteh Forough now has rumors that students are “still coding at home.”
The situation in Afghanistan continues to evolve, but as the Taliban expands their foothold, there have been reports of attacks, murders and human rights violations. However, it is vital for well-meaning crypto users to be aware of who they are giving; some people worry that scammers may use media attention to steal donations for Afghans.
