According to the Ministry of Public Health, approximately 1 in 10 newborn Afghan babies born since January 2022 have died. That is over 13,000 infant deaths in total from January to March. Source
The current situation on the ground in Afghanistan is tremendously dire and is getting worse with each passing day. Food scarcity and inaccessibility to health services have endangered the lives of nearly 12.9 million children. As giant humanitarian organizations have stopped their work in Afghanistan, ASEEL’s Emergency Response needs urgent help to supply these children with nutritional support. You can help aid in that support.
I'm asking you to join the Grand Challenge by donating a $55 package to help a malnourished child. This challenge aims to reduce child malnutrition in Afghanistan by supporting and providing essential food packages.
Please share this post with your friends and network! Someone might be able to donate a package. But even if you cannot afford a whole package, anyone capable of donating any amount is truly appreciated.
