Help families and children struggling to survive.
Right now, there is an immediate need for food, water and health care. Last winter’s drought has caused such a bad food crisis that currently 95% of people don’t have enough to eat. More than 8 million are one step away from famine, suffering from very high rates of malnutrition.
The destruction of family livelihoods and the severe shortage of drinking water have caused many to leave their homes and drink from unsafe water sources. A near-collapse of the health system is only further adding to this unprecedented humanitarian crisis.
"We are now looking at the worst humanitarian crisis on earth."
- World Food Programme's executive director David Beasley
Our work in Afghanistan
For 20 years World Vision has worked in Afghanistan to address extensive life-threatening humanitarian needs brought about by conflict, climate change and other disasters. We have worked to protect girls and boys, provide them with an education, promoted better health and sanitation, and helped to build livelihoods.
Our commitment to helping families build brighter futures for their children remains.
Afghanistan is filled with children who have amazing potential and we are here to serve them and help them reach fullness of life. Our courageous staff are unrelenting in their pursuit to achieve this, constantly securing humanitarian and development access in the most difficult and dangerous places.
Our teams are on the ground, providing food, clean water and healthcare to the most vulnerable. Most of World Vision Afghanistan’s 300+ staff are locals. They are experienced, committed and know the needs of children and families better than anyone.
Your donation today will help us continue to transform the futures of vulnerable children by providing access to water, food, healthcare, and child protection.
