Annual Report 2021

In 2021 we were able to provide support to over 140,000 children and adults- making it one of our strongests years ever. 

As the COVID-19 pandemic continued to factor into our lives and operations, we will also remember 2021 for the convulsive events that took place across Afghanistan – which saw the withdrawal of US troops and allied forces, and the Taliban’s return to power.

We also witnessed additional insecurity in Central African Republic, meaning that the first half of the year became too dangerous for us to maintain our full range of programme activities for several weeks at a time across these countries of operation.

In Central African Republic, a new rebel alliance fought for control of several areas of the country and created a situation which was so unstable that our teams had to periodically evacuate and then return to work.

We are proud of the bravery shown by our teams in Afghanistan, Central African Republic.

2021 was also a difficult year for raising income from some of our traditional funding partners. COVID-19 specific responses still attracted a significant share of humanitarian funds and financial resources for child protection and psycho-social support were more difficult to find - particularly in the first six months of the year.

We remain forever grateful to our amazing supporters for standing with us and helping to   provide for children in acute need around the world.
