For 20 years we've been working in Afghanistan. Despite the present uncertainty, we're committed to continuing our work. Currently, this requires sensitivity and a commitment from all involved to genuinely work together.
Join Asuntha Charles, our Afghanistan National Director, as she visits some of our recently re-opened food, nutrition & health projects. Note the importance of organisations working together and the incredible staff and community representatives that help make this make happen.

Currently 18.4 million Afghans are in need of humanitarian assistance, with more than 30% of the population facing emergency or crisis levels of food needs. Recent changes to government, the effects of Covid-19 and ongoing drought mean food prices are surging, banks don't have adequate funds and many households have lost their income. In situations like this children are extremely vulnerable.
"2.7m people face starvation if they do not urgently receive food. Young children are at the greatest risk!" Asuntha Charles
To ensure families can survive, we are working to respond to the most urgent needs in communities whilst continuing to advocate for the future of all Afghan children, especially girls. If there was ever a time to turn up for Afghan children, it's now.
