UNICEF: The international community should not forget the people of Afghanistan
The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) says that Afghanistan is dealing with the worst humanitarian crisis and the world community should not forget them.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Kabul: Omar Abed, the deputy of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), told ITV News UK that two-thirds of the population of Afghanistan are facing severe hunger and another six million people in this country are at risk of famine.
He emphasizes that currently 28 million Afghans need humanitarian aid.
Omar Abed said: "Unfortunately, the situation is getting worse day by day and there is a need to provide urgent aid to the people of Afghanistan to prevent a humanitarian crisis."
Earlier, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Aid (OCHA) said in a report that nearly 25 million people in Afghanistan will face poverty by the beginning of 2023.
It should be mentioned that with the blocking of more than seven billion dollars of Afghanistan's currency by the US and deadly sanctions by Western countries under the pretext of human rights issues, the country's citizens are facing severe poverty.
