1 million children in Afghanistan starving at risk of dying if we do not help. Please do not ignore that this is happening. Please respond.
I want to communicate this with absolute clarity. 9 million people facing starvation in Afghanistan, including 1 million children. Temperatures reach as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit in Kabul and they are sleeping in tents. Aid has been reduced/frozen and they are depending on us, the international community, for relief. If we all help them, many of them can live.
I am humbly asking you to please not turn your backs. Please stand with these people.
Please donate to help. I donate through the IRC, International Rescue Committee. The website is rescue.org or you can call 1-855-9RESCUE. You can see the IRC’s information on CharityNavigator to verify them.
Spreading the word through your social networks in person or on social media
It doesn’t matter what you do. Please do something. Even $50 will help and could save an Afghan child from dying. I am humbly asking for your help. I sincerely mean it. This is not my “leftist agenda” as my political persuasion has never been discussed publicly, and moreover it is irrelevant here, we are talking about children in Afghanistan starving.
Have you ever someone starve? An animal, a child? I’ve seen both. Let me tell you, it was pretty awful and you would do anything to stop it. Many of us were fortunate enough to be born into situations that were not dire. We have our ups and downs here in the United States there are supports in place so that nobody starves to death on a massive scale like this.
The children in Afghanistan starving never asked to be this way. They are innocent children born into poverty. In five minutes they deal with more than anything we will have to deal with our entire lifetimes. I am a mother of four kids and I do not know what I would do if I couldn’t feed my kids and they were starving right in front of my eyes like these poor kids in Afghanistan.
Please don’t turn your backs. Any of us could have been in this same situation. Please help them.
Thank you for hearing my words, and happy holidays to you and your families.
