Children in Afghanistan are fighting for survival 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. The estimated death toll surpasses 4,000 people, with thousands injured. And this will only get worse. An already suffering population now face another deadly challenge. The Herat earthquakes has reduced homes to rubble, destroyed livelihoods, and ended the lives of loved ones.
Add this to the everyday reality of conflict, drought, economic collapse, and mass hunger. This is what children in Afghanistan are facing in 2023.
From food shortages causing malnutrition, to the violation of children’s rights. Girls who once spoke out about child marriage and advocated for their own education, now face only barriers. It's heartbreaking that so many girls are potentially at risk just because they asked to go to school instead of their wedding ceremony.
