In the past month of January, at least 22 children under the age of five have died due to fierce cold and snowstorms.
Since the camps have been in a state of “chronic emergency,” most aid donors view that as, by definition, no longer a humanitarian crisis.
For further detail please read the NYTimes article: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/04/world/asia/cold-weather-kills-children-in-afghan-refugee-camps.html?pagewanted=1&_r=3&ref=world

The International donors must do more to save these children.

      No child should suffer. It is a moral imperative that we should help these suffering people.

      Because as Mary Robinson said ""Part of the wisdom of the Elders is to remind the world that we actually have universal values that are accepted by every government in the world and yet they are not being implemented."

      Every child dererves the very basic rights and the most important to be alive! with no food and shelter they will die.
