Description of service

Afghanistan’s only family support helpline. 6464 is a toll-free number in Afghanistan that provides phone-based counselling, legal aid and referrals to ground-based social service providers. The Family Helpline call operators have a strong awareness of cultural and religious sensitivity. As trained legal consultants, religious scholars and social workers, the operators provide accessible, trustworthy counselling and advice to Afghans in need of non-violent conflict resolution and can assist with issues including general counselling, mental health support and advice on self- protection. Consultations with a religious scholar can be provided, if requested.
