A large number of Afghan children are physically disabled. During the late 1980s, according to United Nations estimates, more than 300,000 Afghan children, victims of war, were disabled.
A survey taken in 2005-2006 found that there were between 747,500 and 867,100 disabled Afghans, or 2.7% of the population. More than 50 % of the disabled lived in Kabul, Khandahar, and Heart provinces which have seen the most fighting during the past three and half decades.
This is the result of more than three decades of landmine use by numerous armies and factions. Among the disabled, half were under the age of 19.
Thus, there are probably over 400,000 disabled Afghan children, victims of direct conflict and leftover landmines.
We are appealing to you to help us achieve this utmost noble endeavor. Our aim and dream is to be able to provide every disabled man, woman, and child in Afghanistan a wheelchair so that they can restore their shattered lives.
You might not be able to fully comprehend how a handicapped person feels, but you can certainly help restore their smile. We ask that you help us by sending your donation of £120 as soon as possible so that we can distribute vital wheelchairs.
