âThe children of Afghanistan are in our thoughts and actions this holiday season. It is not because we are far away that the pain is not near. Hopefully, other generous spirits can bring more attention and healing to their life and death situation, âsaid Gabriela Hearst.
According to Save the Children, years of conflict, natural disasters, especially droughts, and the fallout from COVID-19 have pushed Afghanistan to the brink of disaster. Millions of Afghan children are growing up in areas of high intensity conflict, forcing many families to flee. More than 5 million children are one step away from famine. Save the Children teams on the ground in Afghanistan are focused on providing food, medical care, education and shelter for children.
âThe current situation for children in Afghanistan is dire, with 10 million children in need of humanitarian assistance,â said Janti Soeripto, President and CEO of Save the Children. âFamilies are experiencing crisis levels of hunger and health care is collapsing, and Save the Children’s mobile health and nutrition teams are providing vital support. With the help of Gabriela Hearst, we will continue to be a lifeline for Afghan children, providing essential food and medical care, as well as education and shelter for children and families who fail. have nowhere to turn.
