UN warning of food crisis in Afghanistan
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations has announced in a report that after November and the cold weather, 6 million people in Afghanistan face extreme hunger.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): While Afghanistan's assets are still blocked, the United Nations agencies in a report referring to food insecurity emphasized that about 6 million people in Afghanistan will soon face severe hunger.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the World Food Program Office emphasized in a report about the increase in food insecurity in the world that after November and the cold weather in Afghanistan, about 6 million people will need very urgent aid.
This report noted that 20,000 people faced extreme hunger in the highlands of Afghanistan last winter.
In this report, it is stated that Afghanistan and 19 other countries need humanitarian aid to save themselves from the catastrophe of hunger.
This is despite the fact that at the beginning of this week, hundreds of residents of Kabul started an anti-American demonstration and demanded the unconditional and immediate release of the reserves of the Central Bank of Afghanistan by the United States and Western countries.
The protesters chanted slogans and stated that this money should be handed over to the people of Afghanistan so that it can be used for the reconstruction and growth of the economy and other infrastructures and the people of Afghanistan can be saved from poverty.
According to the reports of the United Nations agencies, the reduction in the level of violence in Afghanistan has allowed charitable organizations to reach the needy, but the presence of landmines, explosive materials left over from the war, logistical challenges and poor infrastructure still limit access to the needy.
