About Campaign

This campaign is in support of the ASEEL Grand Challenge. The humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan continues to escalate with continued conflicts and political shifts in the country, pushing 24.4 million people into poverty endangering the lives of 12.9 million children. Food scarcity and insufficient access to health services have caused acute malnutrition in 3.2 million children. Currently, 1.1 million children are on the cusp of severe acute malnutrition, life-threatening without treatment.
