Emergency Relief project for orphan children
Distributing cash for food and providing orphans with moral education and general education. Orphans’ human rights have been seriously violated and they live in poor living conditions due to loss of their parents (*) and have not received education, moral supports and aid. We work with them closely to provide them with friendly environment and heal their trauma caused by war, and provide them with some cash for their foods to secure their living.
YVO and PVU jointly design the Project, for which PVU will obtain funding. The Project in the field will be implemented by YVO in partnership with PVU.
Orphans are children who lost their parents in Afghanistan. They don’t know the dates of their births, have no birth certificates, have lost every thread of any family networks and celebrate no holidays. Some of them forced to watch as their parents, relatives or friends were or killed.
During the decades of war in Afghanistan, the war brought about not only ruins, poverty and unemployment but also countless orphans. UNICEF estimates the number of orphans around the world at 143 million. Afghanistan alone has 1.6 million
Indeed, Afghan war orphans are subjected to extreme poverty and violence on a daily basis. Their situation is in fact critical, including the situation of child mortality, malnutrition, and forced marriages.
