Afghanistan Emergency Response Fund
Afghanistan is one of the most dangerous places to be a child.
Afghan children and families are experiencing increasingly deteriorating living conditions since the Taliban seized power in August 2021. Decades of conflict have left systems on the brink of collapse and the country is experiencing one of the biggest humanitarian crises in the world today.
The situation continues to deteriorate due to prolonged conflict, chronic poverty, drought, a gender crisis and economic hardships, and children are the ones paying the price.
