Afghanistan, 2009: Boys play in Bamyan Valley. The country remains afflicted by both violent conflict and natural disasters. The United Nations Consolidated Appeal released in December 2010 estimates that 7.8 million people will require food aid in 2011, one million will require agricultural assistance, and many more will require basic services and protection. Meanwhile, attacks against civilians and aid workers are on the rise.
