Hunger Crisis

Since birth, 2-year-old Rahima has had cleft lip and palate. Due to the prolonged drought, her family lost their agricultural lands and livestock and they had no source of income. On the verge of death, Rahima was saved with the surgery that has cured her condition and she is now able to eat well. 

Children are nearing starvation because there isn’t enough food, and funding for humanitarian relief is not getting through for the Afghanistan children. 

Life has always been hard for the Rakhine population, but it has only been made worse by the recent military coup in February 2021. Coupled with a second wave of Covid-19 and a crippled economy, families in Rakhine state live in constant fear and are struggling to access basic necessities and feed their children.
