    On behalf of LSO, I would like thank you for supporting children worldwide since they are the most vulnerable group across the globe. As we are involved in assisting children in Afghanistan, we have found out that minimum, children in 1/5 households are affected by different factors like addiction, hard labor, domestic violence. Therefore, thank you for considering children worldwide especially Afghanistan.
