2021 was a desperate year for Afghanistan’s children.
But now, widespread hunger and the onset of freezing winter weather are making things even worse.
Almost every child in the country does not have enough food to eat. Half the population are at crisis levels of hunger.
Last year, we reached almost half a million children with our programmes - but this isn't enough. We need to scale up our response, to help thousands more children survive the toughest time in their lives.
It’s true – the crisis in Afghanistan is complicated; brought on by drought, conflict, economic collapse, Covid-19 and a health service on its knees.
But what matters right now is that we pull together and help Afghanistan’s children to make it through this.
