The Lost Children of Afghanistan
“War violates every right of a child, the right to life, the right to be with family and community, the right to health, the right to development of personality and the right to be nurtured and protected.”
Afghanistan has endured 25 years of brutal wars during which human rights were violated amongst all generations and genders, leaving thousands of widows and tens of thousands of war orphans behind.

These children are survivors of bombings, shelling of their homes, schools and playing fields; many others have been killed, raped, sold into prostitution or maimed by landmines, which still litter the country. Many children today still suffer serious traumatic stress.

They live on the streets and are subject to hunger, abuse, and extremely poor health, the lucky ones are taken into orphanages, which for the most part operate on very little resources.

In addition to facing life without their loved ones and in critical conditions these children are also deprived of knowledge and education and the most basic fun other children of their age enjoy on a daily basis.
