Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Kabul: The World Food Program in Afghanistan wrote today (Tuesday, June 11) in X that after the record hunger in 2021 and 2022, food security in Afghanistan has slightly improved; But still more than a quarter of the population needs food aid to survive.

According to the United Nations, 23.7 million people will need humanitarian aid in Afghanistan this year.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) had requested $3.06 billion in aid to address the needs of these people.
