UNICEF: 16M Children Need Protection and Humanitarian Assistance

UNICEF's representative in Afghanistan Fran Equiza said that "16 million children” are in need of protection and humanitarian assistance.

Fran Equiza added that in Afghanistan, children’s rights are eroded every day and too many kids are burdened with responsibilities way beyond their age.

“That smile gives me hope. This smile and this child-friendly space, in a country with almost 16 million children, need protection and humanitarian assistance. In a country in which way too many kids are burdened with responsibilities way beyond their age, and children’s rights are eroded every day,”

The Ministry of Economics said that children in the country need humanitarian aid and support in the education sector, and the world should support the current government in both areas.

“Afghan children need support in two areas, in the area of humanitarian aid and in the area of education. We request the international community support the Islamic Emirate in both areas,” said Abdul Latif Nazari, the deputy minister of the Economy.

Meanwhile, some children in the capital said that because of their families and life, they face hard labor and they ask the Islamic Emirate to pay more attention to the rights of children.

“We call on the Islamic Emirate to pay attention to children so we can learn and be someone in the future,” said Najib, a child.

“I don’t want to work, I want to learn and become a pilot,” said Fahim, a child.

Earlier, the head of the labour organization in Afghanistan announced the increase in the number of child labourers in the country and said that the battles of several decades and the poverty of families are considered the main reasons for child labor.

UNICEF also said that In Afghanistan, 1 in 5 children is engaged in child labour, and it considered the political change in the country to be one of the factors influencing the increase in child labor.
