ISHKAR Launch Photography Print Sale for Afghanistan

Our wonderful friends at ISHKAR are once again launching a stunning photography print sale, with all proceeds going towards EMERGENCY’s projects in Afghanistan. This year, 19 internationally-renowned photographers have donated their work, including Steve McCurry, Zahra Khodadadi, Lorenzo Tugnoli, Farshad Usyan, Andrew Quilty, Elise Blanchard, Matthieu Paley, Michael Christopher Brown, and many more.

“I can think of few greater humanitarian organisations than the EMERGENCY hospitals in Afghanistan which have operated continuously throughout the turbulence of the past year. When many  fled the country, EMERGENCY doubled down on their commitment to care for Afghans as they have since 1999.”
Steve McCurry

Afghanistan is in the midst of a humanitarian crisis, exacerbated by last week’s devastating earthquake. Despite the circumstances, EMERGENCY’s network of healthcare facilities is still providing urgently needed medical care for the Afghan people, and training a new generation of Afghan medical professionals.

Last year’s print sale by ISHKAR raised an extraordinary 108,000. We are aiming to match that figure again. This is an opportunity to show solidarity with the people of Afghanistan during the most difficult of times.
The sale consists of high-quality prints at special one-off prices, which will be available to order between 1 July and 15 August.
