TAWDE KHBARE: 300,000 Afghan Children at Risk: Watchdog
More than 300,000 Afghan children face freezing winter conditions that could lead to illness, in the worst cases death, without proper winter clothing and heating, Save the Children said on Thursday.
“The early snow in the northern parts of Afghanistan where we work has impacted children particularly badly. The most vulnerable children are those whose schools have shut because of the worsening winter conditions. Their families don’t have the money to buy winter clothing. Instead children are forced to huddle at home to escape the bitter cold.” Said Chris Nyamandi, Save the Children’s Country Director in Afghanistan.
