Children in Afghanistan need your help

For a long time, Afghanistan has been one of the most dangerous places to be a child. War, destruction and loss has been the common place for children, families and communities in Afghanistan. But now, the escalation of violence in the country makes their situation even more desperate.

Families are fleeing their homes, children are being recruited by armed groups and are severely traumatized after witnessing atrocities no human being should see. More than one million children under 5 year will suffer from malnutrition if we don’t do something right now.

UNICEF has been working in Afghanistan for the past 65 year, and will continue to do so, no matter what.

We’re committed to stay and deliver.

So far in 2021, UNICEF helped 1.7 million people through humanitarian assistance, but much more aid is needed when facing this new scenario. UNICEF is urgently scaling-up its response to deliver life-saving health and nutrition supplies.

People in Afghanistan need this help, and they need it now.

Your donation will help UNICEF provide emergency WASH services to people, including displaced families. It will help supply ready-to-use therapeutic food to severely malnourished children.

It will help provide essential health services through mobile health teams and support COVID-19 vaccinations across the country.

And it will help us give humanitarian cash assistance to families who are in desperate need.

Children shouldn’t be paying such a heavy price. We must protect the lives of children in Afghanistan.

Please donate now.
