Child Protection

application/pdfAFRAID TO GO OUTSIDEFor children in Afghanistan, the war has exacted a heavy toll of suffering and continues to pose a number of profound threats. Prolonged conflict exposes children to toxic levels of stress, affects their access to education and health facilities and exposes them to extreme violence. War has become so normal that children risk death or injury every day just going about their daily lives, like walking to school, playing with friends outside or going to the market. A comprehensive survey by Save the Children of nearly 700 parents and children across four conflict-affected provinces of Afghanistan paints a stark picture: children are increasingly too scared to go outside. For a great majority, their journeys to and from school are full of fear.20/11/20193MB
