Over 3,531 Children Will Be Born in Afghanistan in 2020 First Day: UNICEF
An estimated 3,531 babies will be born in Afghanistan in 2020, on New Year’s first day, UNICEF said on Wednesday.
Afghanistan’s babies will account for 0.9 per cent of the estimated 392,078 babies to be born on New Year’s Day.
“The beginning of a new year and a new decade is an opportunity to reflect on our hopes and aspirations not only for our future, but the future of those who will come after us,” said Henrietta Fore, UNICEF Executive Director.
“As the calendar flips each January, we are reminded of all the possibility and potential of each child embarking on her or his life’s journey, if they are just given that chance.”
Each January, UNICEF celebrates babies born on New Year’s Day, an auspicious day for child birth around the world.
