Every child deserves to feel safe and protected, even during humanitarian emergencies.
A humanitarian crisis delivers the heaviest blow to the most vulnerable—especially children—often in the world’s toughest places. 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 helping families and communities rebuild.
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 20 million people—nearly half of the population—are facing distressing levels of acute food insecurity, and children are dying due to starvation. Nearly the entire population is living below the poverty line, resulting in starvation, illness, and a sense of desperation.
In August 2021, World Vision declared a Category III Global Response (our highest response level) for Afghanistan and put resources in place to ensure that we could deliver assistance efficiently and effectively.
What we have accomplished together so far
Since August 2021, we have delivered life-saving humanitarian assistance impacting more than 1 million lives through the following activities:
- Nearly 55,000 people gained access to sustainable and clean drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene services
- We organized mobile health clinics, maternal healthcare services, nutritional care, and psychosocial support, all of which impacted nearly 170,000 people.
- World Vision addressed the immediate protection needs of 6,555 children by offering psychosocial support, community-based child protection systems, parenting workshops, case management services, and education activities.
- Through cash and food assistance, as well as livelihood recovery support, vulnerable households had greater access to high-quality food.
None of this would have been accomplished without your partnership. Thank you!
“I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.” —Jeremiah 31:13
At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
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.
