An international charity working to prevent children being trafficked from Afghanistan says a delay to promised UK government funding is “devastating”.

The government had agreed to pay War Child £500,000 from July this year in a much-publicised donation match scheme.

But they now say they will not pay out the money until April 2022.

Actress Carey Mulligan, a patron of War Child, said the “damaging decision” needed reversing – but the government said it had to take “tough” decisions.
