UNICEF Worker: World Must Help Afghan Children

The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) expressed dire concerns over conditions for Afghanistan’s children, saying Afghanistan is one of the worst places to be a child.

“The world cannot and should not avert it eyes and forget to help those who are most in need and those who have paid the highest price amid this instability," said Salam Al-Janabi, Communication Specialist at UNICEF

Zahra, 13, who polishes shoes in Kabul city, said she must work in order to find food for her family. Zahra also goes to school.

“I have to work. There is no one to pay our expenses in our family. I pay the expenses for my study and buy bread for our home," Zahra said.

Many children are working to help their families.

Sefatullah left school to be the breadwinner of his family. He said: “I left school. I come in the morning to clean cars windshields in order to get food.”

Children-supporting organizations and activists asked the international community to continue their assistance to Afghan children.

“Children are in a really bad condition in Afghanistan, and it is getting worse for them. The Taliban and the the international community are responsible of the situation." Maryam Maarof Arwin Children Rights Activist said.
