What’s happening in Afghanistan?
Afghanistan is one of the most dangerous places to be a child. Right now, the situation is desperate. It is a country on the brink of collapse due to prolonged conflict, chronic poverty, economic crisis and drought, and children are paying a horrific price.
More than 12.9 million children are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance to survive. Without immediate action, more than 1 million children under age five could be so severely malnourished that they will be at risk of death.
There is an urgent need for protection and assistance now.
