Side by side with the Afghan people since 1984.
Decades of armed conflict have made Afghanistan one of the most fragile countries in the world. The Danish Committee for Aid to Afghan Refugees (DACAAR) is a Danish emergency aid and development organization that supports sustainable development in Afghanistan for people – in their own community.
Danish People’s Aid co-founded DACAAR in 1984 and has been a loyal supporter of the board ever since.
DACAAR has a strong Afghan profile and only a small secretariat in Denmark. A wide range of donors support the organization, which has approximately 1,000 local employees in the country. Among the largest contributors are the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the EU.
