Kabul : Some 24.4 million people in Afghanistan, including 13 million children, are in immediate need of humanitarian aid, a study by the UK-based Save the Children NGO revealed.

In the study released on Wednesday, 18.9 million people, including 9.2 million children in Afghanistan, are anticipated to experience an emergency or critical food insecurity between June and November 2022, reports Khaama Press.

Save the Children’s study cited the UN Development Program stating that 97 per cent of the Afghan population faces the prospect of living in poverty and falling below the poverty line.

Acute malnutrition affects 1.1 million Afghan children under the age of five, according to the report.

Covid-19, measles, acute watery diarrhoea (AWD), and dengue fever are among the numerous disease emergencies Afghanistan is currently dealing with.

A significant contraction of the economy, rising poverty, and financial instability, as well as high unemployment and high food and agricultural input prices, have been caused by the rapid drop in international grant support, loss of access to offshore assets, and disruption of financial links, says Save the Children.

With the Taliban running the country, Afghanistan’s unstable economy is impacted by the group’s political isolation and economic sanctions, which exacerbated the country’s already-impoverished citizens’ poverty, unemployment, and hunger.— IANS

  1. Tell me a single prosperous Islamic country that is following Sharia law? Where ever, you apply Sharia, it collapses the country. Whatever money Saudi, Qatar has earned it is from oil & not from hard work.
    Afghanistan is about to collapse because of Sharia law. These Islamic Jihadi’s impose Sharia law in the region & then beg for money all over the world.
    Afghanistan is a poor country because every Afghan family produces at least 5 children. Hence, their financial situation is never improved. Instead of providing food, the world should provide them family planning measures.

    • “Secular” Hindu gandu troll

      Lying as usual. I don’t what the RSS bhangi IT cell is paying your smelly behind but you fail as always with same boring lies which I always refute. Afghanistan’s problems stem from nearly 50 years of war, and they have emerged triumphmant…you’re just a filthy Hindu gutter rat bitter that Afghanistan is today free and out of India’s orbit. The sacred law of Sharia not only protects life, liberty and prosperity needed to jump start civilization…we were writing books on math and medicine while you Lindus and Europea cave monkeys were engaged in cannibalism. The vast majority Muslim nations are prosperous and stable, which is you ugly Hindu bastards are living in so many of them by the millions. If not for hard work Saudi Arabia and Qatar wouldnt where they are..are you jealous that they use their natural resources to be successful? Ofcourse you are lol What hard work do Hindus do? Nothing except lying and scamming, When you were like dogs from Covid, why did you desperately beg and accept oxygen from Muslim countries? Even Bangladesh has a high per capita income then you mindless monkeys.
      Compare this to India which is a gigantic sh1thole country….that’s why you rat faced Hindus are selling your kidneys and renting your prostitute mothers out to get money to get work visas to work in Muslim countries to clean our toilets. More then 650 million Hindus still sh1t on the streets, massive unemployement, 95% of the population is dirt poor….this is because Hinduism is a force of regression, backwardness, superstition, tyranny oppression and filth along with 330 million pokemon “gods.”
      You should be kissing the feet of Muslims who brought you civilization…turning India into the worlds #1 economy for centuries, but Hindus in barely 75 years turned into a 3rd world fascist Hindu sh1thole. India will prosper once Hinduism is flushed down the toilet..we can start with a zero child policy to reduce the Hindu population which also reduce Hindu terrorism by making sure no RSS sanghi bhangi rapists are born. I also to encourage all Hindu women in having abortions and having their tubes ties so no further burden is put on humanity.
      Also ALL smelly Hindu sh1t eaters need to be deported for permanent ghar wapsi to their bhangi mata gutter nation. No Hindus = No terrorism.
