THE CHILDREN OF AFGHANISTAN

The population of Afghanistan is 35 million people, half of whom are under the age of 18. Of these totals, 24.4 million, half of Afghanistan's entire population, including 12.9 million children, live below the national poverty line. All of them rely on basic primary health care services for life-saving care. Without it, Afghans will suffer cataclysmic effects. If this continues, an estimated 212 children will die every day.They desperately need humanitarian assistance.
