In the dozens of informal refugee settlements around Kabul, Afghanistan, at least 24 children recently died after exposure during the harshest winter in 15 years. UNHCR Communications Officer Babar Baloch stresses that “for them, day-to-day living is a challenge and once it is winter and harsh cold, it is not easy for them to survive.” He said efforts are now focused on providing supplies so they can survive through the winter.
