Children of WAR

Children are the biggest victims of the war in Afghanistan. A nation ravaged by 30 years of war and it is in these extreme conditions that children’s basic right to life and development is seriously compromised. The children there are at risk of violence, abuse, exploitation and neglect. More than 1.6 million children are left orphaned in Afghanistan mainly due to conflict, depriving these children of family life. In the war, not only do children die, they can also be recruited and used to fight in armed forces and groups.
