Afghanistan was already one of the toughest places on earth to be a child. Right now, the situation is desperate 

Political instability, an economic crisis, drought, and COVID-19 have collided to create an unprecedented humanitarian emergency. Soon, children and families will face freezing winter months when temperatures can drop as low as -12°c. 

Around 10 million children across Afghanistan urgently need humanitarian assistance to survive. Without urgent action, almost one million children could be severely malnourished by the end of 2021. That is half of all children under the age of 5.   

They need protection and assistance now.  

UNICEF is on the ground reaching vulnerable children and families with essential health supplies, water and life-saving food, as well as supplies to help those who have been displaced prepare for the onset of winter. We are also working to advocate for the rights of children in Afghanistan, including the right for all children to have an education. 

Thanks to the help of UNICEF’s supporters, in 2021, we’ve already reached 1.7 million children and their families with humanitarian support.  

However, we simply don’t have enough funds to reach every child in danger. We need your help to continue to provide essential life-saving supplies to the children who need it the most. 

Help us reach every child in danger. Please donate now to protect children in Afghanistan.

For the first 12 months, monthly donations made to this appeal will go towards funding UNICEF’s work to support children in Afghanistan. After that donations will go to our Children’s Emergency Fund, to save and protect children in emergencies around the world. In the unlikely event that the funds raised exceed UNICEF’s funding requirements for this appeal, your one off or monthly gift will also go to our Children’s Emergency Fund.
