In Afghanistan, children are still suffering, as crisis piles upon crisis.
Children and families in Afghanistan are experiencing one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world, and recently two deadly earthquakes have brought more chaos. Over 4,000 people have been killed and thousands injured. And this will only get worse. An already suffering population now face another deadly challenge. With homes reduced to rubble, livelihoods destroyed, and loved ones lost.
Add this to the everyday reality of drought, economic collapse, and mass hunger. This is what children in Afghanistan are facing in 2023. And they need your help. Daily life is a desperate struggle for families. The impact of decades of conflict, natural disasters, and economic collapse have pushed more families to the edge.
The worst drought in decades has seen food sources run dry. The small amount of food that is available is simply unaffordable. Many families are being forced to make impossible choices about their children’s futures. Child labour and child marriage continue to destroy childhoods. And UNICEF estimate that this year, 3.2 million Afghan children will suffer from acute malnutrition.
But together, we can protect children living in Afghanistan.
