An Outlook to the Afghan Orphan Children

Dear Editor,
Afghanistan has been a battlefield and the state of civil war since mid, 1970s. The war in Afghanistan has only introduced violation and desperation on all aspects of life. These decades of continuous war have absolutely paralyzed the economical growth and stability of this country, and instead increased hatred and abhorrence among the nations. During the conflicts, tens and thousands of children have lost their parents and became orphans. Such hard circumstances caused them to become criminal or a terrorist by joining the criminal networks and Taliban groups.

Today, more than anything else in Afghanistan, the orphan children suffer the most from different faces of hardships and trouble, they are the most vulnerable parts of this country who have always been the victims death caused by car accident, torture and many other kinds of diseases while they can't afford to visit a doctor for treatment or ask for justice, because nobody is ready to hear their helpless voices. On the other hand, yet the government also pied no helpful or special attention towards these vulnerable orphan children who have lost their parents during the war bloodshed.

I belief, they are also a part of this country who need special care, protection, proper law and especial attention. Every child must have access to get education and to improve their potential for a life of dignity. Every father and mother needs to have access to a safe haven and the ability to provide their vulnerable children the crude life facilities. The rich class people living abroad or inside the country should also help these innocent children and widowed women to improve their lives in terms of social protection, social justice and a normal life. When these families and orphan children improve their lives, it means Afghanistan will improve. Nothing will get better unless and until we join hands together in one intention to fight poverty and injustice or support the poor class people in the society.

The government and each one of Afghan's mission must be only to bring hope and opportunity to Afghan orphan children and vulnerable families, like widowed and excluded people in the society. To accomplish this task, we need to assist them through education and job training skills which will obviously enable them to contribute to their vulnerable families and communities. We also believe that the increased opportunities for the orphan children towards education will develop their self-worth and capabilities. This in turn will forever change their village, community and country at large.

Yours sincerely
