Invisible children – I am a child too

Afghanistan, Kabul and Kapisa. 2012-ongoing, Beneficiaries: 106 minors

Children in Afghanistan represent 48.5% of the population, that is roughly 20 million (UN, 2021). Today 12.9 million Afghan minors are in need of humanitarian aid. Of those children under the age of 5, one in two suffers from serious malnutrition. Given the lack of basic services, it is estimated that, by the end of 2022, 212 children will die every day (UNICEF, 2022). Afghanistan has become a hell on earth for children.

NOVE helps Afghan children suffering from hunger, cold and all other dramatic consequences of poverty, war and violence. As well as supporting their parents with emergency and development projects, this programme gives direct aid to the children living in orphanages and group/foster homes .

The main activities carried out are:

From 2012 to 2019, we contributed annually to expenses for food, clothing, medical assistance, heating, scholastic materials, personnel and other essentials for 30 minors from different ethnic groups who were victims of trauma and who were received in Kabul in the House of Flowers, the only Afghan family-house to have adopted the Montessori method.

In 2022, we have contributed to the expenses of the family-house in Kabul, Window of Hope, which provides a home to 25 children affected by intellectual and physical disabilities.

Since March 2022, we have ensured daily provision of meals, goods of primary necessity and scholastic materials to 51 minors housed in the public orphanage of Kabul. This is done under an official agreement with the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs of the Taliban emirate, with our staff monitoring the conditions of all the children on a weekly basis.
