World Vision Afghanistan


Ravaged by decades of bitter war and devastated by natural disasters, Afghanistan is, without a doubt, a difficult place to live. And, the odds are even more against you if you are a woman or a child. World Vision began working in Afghanistan in 2001, providing emergency relief to those who had been directly affected by a devastating drought as well as supporting those whose livelihoods had been destroyed during the conflict.

More than a decade later,World Vision’s programs have transitioned from immediate assistance to long-term development, focusing on: health, education, livelihoods, and protection of the most vulnerable—especially children.
