Published on 20 October 2010

Challiss McDonough of WFP says, "We are supporting more than 2,000 children at Aschiana centers around Kabul. They receive a full food-for-training ration for their families, consisting of wheat, pulses, vegetable oil and salt. It's the beginning of a very positive partnership between WFP and Aschiana to help these children build a brighter future for themselves." (...) The road ahead in Afghanistan needs to focus on child feeding, rehabilitation, and education. Supporting the work of Aschiana, WFP, and other agencies helping children in Afghanistan is most crucial.
