Recently 24.3 million people in Afghanistan in need of food and non-food items received help during the first nine months of this year. The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Aid for Afghanistan (OCHA) said.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA)_Monitoring, In a tweet on Monday, OCHA said: “Between Jan and Sept 2022, humanitarians reached 24.3 million people with life-saving assistance.”
On the other hand, the citizens of the country say they do not have access to proper food and shelter despite it now being winter.
They also lodged complaints about the distribution of assistance.
However, members of the public have said that for poverty alleviation, work should be provided for the people, and aid organizations can fill the economic gap by implementing projects.
“The fundamental issue is that in addition to aid, work should be done on all the former government’s incomplete and fundamental projects,” said a resident of Nangarhar.
Based on statistics of the UN, the poverty rate in Afghanistan has reached 97%, and this year, Afghanistan still has many vulnerabilities due to natural disasters.
