According to the Christian Science Monitor, civilian casualties in Afghanistan have increased at a record rate. 1,601 civilians have been killed in 2016 and 3,565 have been wounded. Close to a third of the casualties are children.
This kind of statistic is unacceptable. Kids should not suffer. Let’s help them now!
