EMERGENCY AID AND EDUCATION OF CHILDREN
The resumption of power in Afghanistan by the Taliban in August 2021 has led to the collapse of an already dilapidated social and economic system... The United Nations and the IMF speak of 30 million Afghans (85% of the Afghan population) facing starvation. But it is a whole people that is hungry. For the time being, the Afghans receive very little international aid, particularly from India in the form of wheat and biscuits, which are channelled through Pakistan. Basic food, petrol and gas prices have doubled. Electricity is almost non-existent. Winter is cruel for the 38 million Afghans.
Dr Belqis, our paediatric correspondent in Kabul, treats 35 children and their mothers every day in her clinic. Most of the children suffer from asthma (the pollution and dust of Kabul worsen with the snow) and above all from malnutrition. She distributes nutritional flour to the youngest children.
In our high school in Mazar-e Sharif 2,800 students (boys and girls) are being educated.
ALLEVIATE THE DISTRESS OF AGHAN CHILDREN AND PROVIDE EDUCATION TO GIRLS AND BOYS IN AFGHANISTAN
We are continuing our support to the Kabul dispensary of Dr Belqis with a financial endowment, but we are also going to finance the salaries of the teachers in our schools (they have not received any salary for 4 months, before the arrival of the Taliban). Our programmes will be updated according to Afghan news.
