Why World Vision is in Afghanistan
Ravaged by decades of bitter war and devastated by natural disasters, Afghanistan is a fragile state in which life is difficult. And, the odds are even more against women and children. World Vision began working in Afghanistan in 2001, providing emergency relief to those who had been directly affected by a devastating drought as well as supporting those whose livelihoods had been destroyed during the conflict. Equitable access to quality education does not yet exist in Afghanistan, particularly for girls and children in rural settings.
We never give up on people
With so much happening around the world, it can be hard to decide where your money can have the greatest impact. With your help through the Where Most Needed fund, we can respond quickly to urgent needs of the world's most vulnerable children and families. And, thanks to grant funds and donated products, your monthly gifts multiply 4 times in impact.
Prayer Requests from Afghanistan
World Vision's staff in Afghanistan are asking us to join them in prayer for the following:
Pray for the safety of children in Afghanistan amid conflict in the country. Pray that God would bring peace to this country so that children and families might live without fear of violence.
Pray for the health of Afghan children and their families; currently, 40 percent of Afghan children suffer from malnutrition.
