Responding to COVID-19

Around the world, the coronavirus (COVID-19) is taking lives, devastating families and disrupting life in previously unimaginable ways. 

We are responding in every country we work in to limit the spread of the virus and reduce its impact on vulnerable children and their families. 

Afghanistan, is one of the 17 priority countries where we are increasing our efforts to protect especially vulneralble populations.

Afghanistan

World Vision has been working in Afghanistan since 2001, when our operations began in response to an emergency. Within a few years, the organisation moved toward rehabilitation and then on to long-term development programming. Since 2011, we have focused our operations in Herat, Ghor and Badghis provinces in the western region of the country.

As World Vision, we strive to ensure all children: experience good health; are educated for life; are cared for, protected and participating, and experience the love of God and their neighbours. We are proud to say that we have an excellent reputation among Afghan communities and feel privileged to be widely accepted in the provinces in which we work. We see everything we do as a partnership between us, communities and our donors.
