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.

What we're doing to help children in Afghanistan

Thanks to the donations of amazing people like you, we're working with communities and local partners to support children in Afghanistan with: 

  • emergency treatment for malnutrition
  • cash for families to buy food and other essentials, including cash distributions to help over 3,000 families in Kabul
  • blankets, warm clothes and shoes for families facing the extreme winter
  • access to safe drinking water - including water trucking in Khandahar, which has helped over 780 families 
  • shelter materials, hygiene kits and kitchen supplies for families forced to leave their homes. So far, we've distributed 2,000 hygiene kits
  • classes for those who can't go to school - whether that's because of fear of harassment, cultural barriers or simply living too far away
  • safe spaces for children to play, learn and recover from distressing experiences
  • 4 more mobile health teams, making it easier to reach more children and their families 

And for those who've been forced to flee, we're providing support around the world. We're working with refugees in Pakistan, across Europe and in the US - to ensure vulnerable children are kept safe and protected.
