Solar lights for refugees returning to Afghanistan

Due to grow­ing ten­sions between Pakistan and Afgh­anistan, the gov­ern­ment of Pakistan has ordered all un­doc­u­mented Afghans to ac­quire a pass­port and a val­id visa or re­turn to their coun­try of ori­gin. As a res­ult, Afgh­anistan is now fa­cing an es­cal­at­ing hu­man­it­ari­an crisis with over one mil­lion Afghans ex­pec­ted to have re­turned to Afgh­anistan by the end of 2016. Many of them had been liv­ing in Pakistan for dec­ades and some had nev­er set foot in Afgh­anistan be­fore.
Forced to leave, these re­turn­ing refugees have nowhere to go. They ar­rive with lim­ited or no money, no ma­ter­i­al as­sets, without a job or a roof over their heads and no live­li­hood to speak of. With winter well on its way, they now have to face the huge chal­lenge of sur­viv­ing the bit­ter cold of Afgh­anistan.
Save the Chil­dren sup­ports the most vul­ner­able re­turn­ing refugee chil­dren and their fam­il­ies with WakaWa­kas as a com­ple­ment­ary ele­ment of their winter sur­viv­al kit along with oth­er much needed and life-sav­ing sup­port.
