The organization, with the financial help of mostly individuals around the world, has delivered thousands of food parcels to desperate Afghans in the past two months (Oct/Nov 2021). Foundation officials say that food parcels including flour, cooking oil, and rice, were distributed to hundreds of people in Kunduz this week. Welcoming the foundation’s initiative, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) called on other charity organizations and businessmen to step in to help vulnerable families. (20211117)


In September 2006, the Bayat Foundation was registered in New Jersey as a non-profit and the organization applied for its 501 c 3 tax exempt status in the United States. It is designed to allow people who wanted to take part in the rebuilding efforts in Afghanistan through a proper mechanism that donors are comfortable with. This organization will not be controlled by the NGO that has been previously established in Afghanistan.

That Non Government Organization in Afghanistan is primarily funded by NON 501 c 3 Bayat Foundation funds.

The 501 c 3 Bayat Foundation in the United States is intended to be primarily funded by the general public and will be operated based on the rules and guidelines of a 501 C 3 pending organization.

Both organizations share the same founder, Ehsan Bayat.
