STORYLINE:

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said it was distributing winterization kits in different provinces of Afghanistan to vulnerable families with pregnant and lactating women, families with children with disabilities, female headed households, and others. The kits are part of UNICEF’s emergency response to keep vulnerable children, mothers and families protected during the harsh winter in Afghanistan.

According to UNICEF, Afghanistan was already one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a child. Over the past year, the situation has become even more desperate as conflict, drought, and COVID-19 have collided to create a humanitarian emergency.

Essential services are on the brink of collapse, exacerbating the needs of an already vulnerable population. More than half of the population need assistance, including 12.9 million children. As the humanitarian situation continues to deteriorate, outbreaks of life-threatening diseases are putting children’s lives at risk. Tens of thousands of cases of measles have been reported in children so far in 2021, and there have also been outbreaks of acute watery diarrhoea, malaria and dengue fever. 

UNICEF has been on the ground in Afghanistan for 65 years with offices nationwide and a range of partners that support us in delivering assistance to the most vulnerable, especially children. UNICEF said it was now scaling up its lifesaving programmes for children and women – including through the delivery of health, nutrition and safe water to displaced families.
