God is with people suffering from disasters — families facing famine, conflict, or the aftermath of earthquakes, hurricanes, and tsunamis. Join us in prayer for all who find themselves as “strangers,” as Jesus calls them in Matthew 25:35.
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 World Vision Fund, you’ll be meeting critical needs both today and tomorrow, helping people rebuild in the wake of disasters and empowering entire communities to lift themselves out of poverty.
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.
