Conflict breeds hunger.
60% of the world's hungry are living in places affected by war and violence.
Four out of every five children whose growth has been stunted due to malnutrition live in these places.
Uprooting families, ruining agricultural lands, and disrupting economies, conflict is devastating the lives of children.
“Afghanistan’s crisis has gotten worse since the start of the conflict in Ukraine.
Attention has turned away, and the country has rapidly slipped into one of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis.
Failure to act immediately will have grave consequences. We’re already seeing families selling their children or marrying them off.
Many more children will suffer and die if Afghanistan is forgotten.
We need to act now, release frozen funds, and agree to fund long-term development. Time is running out."
- Asuntha Charles, National Director, World Vision Afghanistan
More than 5 million Afghan children are just one step away from famine.
Help us reach them today.
Oftentimes, the focus is on the conflict and the danger and not on the many untold stories of the children living in these places who are:
800 million children are living in these dangerous places and counting
Children are nearly 3 times more likely to be out of primary school than in other low-income countries
Children are 20 times more likely to die from malnutrition. disease and lack of healthcare than from weapons in conflict
68% of the people forced to leave their homes comes from just 5 countries, including Syria, Afghanistan and Myanmar
In the world’s most dangerous places,
where life changes in an instant,
your constant aid makes a world of difference.
Since 2012, the Rakhine state has been shaken by the ongoing conflict. Prone to natural disasters and coupled with poor basic infrastructure, movement restrictions, and limited trade opportunities, the population lives precariously. Now with the military coup, the situation is dire and the people are in urgent need.
THEIR WORLD IN PIECES
By 2030, 80% of the world’s poorest people will live in the world's most dangerous places.
Life in such places can change frequently and often in an instant, exposing vulnerable children to violence, exploitation, deprivation, abuse and neglect for generations.
People are holding onto their lives in fear of the next attack, bombing or unrest.
Families and children are not able to bounce back from natural or man-made disasters, diseases and pandemics.
Government does not have the capacity nor the will to respond to their needs or treat them fairly.
Without proper nutrition, healthcare and sanitation facilities, children are susceptible to infectious diseases.
Children are left extremely vulnerable to exploitation, deprivation and violence, often for generations.
REAL CHILDREN. REAL STORIES. DANGEROUS PLACES.
Watch this space for stories that will give you a piece of their broken world. Stories of children who are living in the most dangerous places in the world, exposed to exploitation and violence, yet holding onto their lives and little of what remains with hope.
