We are deeply concerned for children in Afghanistan who are suffering from the impacts of multiple crises. Since the beginning of October, Afghanistan has been suffering from the effects of four major earthquakes. These earthquakes worsen an already dire situation in Afghanistan. After decades of conflict and worsening climate impacts, millions of children and families are in need of your support.The change in Afghanistan’s regime last year has plunged the country into an unprecedented economic crisis combined with severe drought that now sees over half the population living in poverty. So many are displaced and are without crucial basics like food, water, healthcare and education. We urgently need your help to protect vulnerable children living in dangerous places affected by conflict, natural disasters, and harmful cultural norms. Almost half the population in Afghanistan, 18.4 million people, needed humanitarian and protection assistance last year alone. This number continues to grow each day.
Every $1 you give to help kids in danger will provide $6 of urgent support.
A monthly gift of $20, will provide $120 worth of life-changing support to children whose lives are on the line, thanks to our partnerships with other organisations.
The situation in Afghanistan today is a living nightmare for children. They’re starving. They’re sick. They’re out of school. How will they survive?

"It is time for all of us to remember these children. We must take action to ensure Afghanistan’s children, like children right here in Aotearoa New Zealand, have the opportunity to play, to learn, and to live life in all its fullness.” Grant Bayldon.
World Vision is extremely concerned for children in Afghanistan. Young and adolescent girls and boys experience conflict and instability, displacement and multidimensional poverty distinctly and disproportionately. The recent conflict has impacted children greatly, compounding the child protection risks associated with the ongoing drought, internal displacement, COVID-19, and food and water insecurity.
World Vision is working alongside our partners to ensure children are protected and spared the consequences of conflict and instability.
As part of an international partnership working in nearly 100 countries, World Vision New Zealand pursues the highest standards of stewardship and accountability.
In 2021, 84.6% of World Vision New Zealand's total operating expenses were used for international program support that benefited children, families and communities in need. Learn more.
