The compounding effects of drought, displacement, decades of conflict, and COVID-19 are creating a massive humanitarian crisis for children and families in Afghanistan. An estimated 18.4 million men, women, and children are in need of life-saving aid.
Food insecurity is on the rise, with more than half of Afghanistan’s population living below the poverty line. A water crisis is also unfolding. Communities are struggling to get enough water for livestock and agriculture, as well as for drinking and hygiene.
Additionally, following the recent conflict and threat of COVID-19, the healthcare system is in near-collapse. COVID-19 is having a particularly dramatic impact on women and girls, further compounding a multitude of daily challenges including protection risks and human rights violations.
World Vision has been equipping and empowering children and families in need in Afghanistan for over 20 years through proven programs in health, nutrition, child protection, clean water and sanitation, livelihoods, and education — and we’re committed to serving long term. Help us deliver essential aid to 1 million vulnerable children and families by donating today.
World Vision’s goal in Afghanistan is to provide life-saving aid and long-lasting support to vulnerable children and families. The timing and extent of our response will be determined as we are able to assess and gain access to the areas of greatest need. Programs funded by donors in the U.S. will resume once World Vision has received the appropriate license from the U.S. government.
Your gift is a sacred trust. We promise to honor your generosity and use your donation in the most effective way possible. The gift options shown reflect World Vision projects and the suggested donation amounts are based on periodic surveys of the countries we serve. Each item is representative of the gift category in which it appears, and donations will be used to provide assistance within that gift category where it is needed most. When you give any animal gift, a portion of the gift may also help provide watering sources, farming assistance, hunger relief, and other related essentials as needed.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
