On the 7th October, the north-west region of Afghanistan was hit by a 6.3 magnitude earthquake causing mass devastation in one of the hardest places in the world to be a child. 

War Child staff were some of the first to respond and are on the ground working tirelessly to help children and families whose homes have been damaged or destroyed by setting up temporary shelters.

The team have been providing aid such as clean water, warm clothes and hygiene kits, and have reached nearly 20,000 children by providing psychosocial support, reuniting children with their families who were separated after the earthquake hit, and set up child friendly spaces for children to feel safe. 

Children and families of Afghanistan urgently need your support and basic essentials. Your help means that we can provide children with food, a safe space, hygiene kits and psychological first aid. 

The country is in the midst of a food crisis, with half of all children under five suffering from severe acute malnutrition. Please, help us reach vulnerable children when they need us most. 

Donate today and help us continue our life-saving work in Afghanistan and in war zones all around the world.

Years of conflict, severe drought, and the impacts of COVID-19 have pushed many families in Afghanistan into poverty. With no other means of survival, they are being forced to make difficult decisions such as sending their children across the border to Iran in search of work.
