Half of Afghanistan’s population will suffer from severe malnutrition from November, UN says

According to a United Nations report, more than half of Afghanistan’s population, or 22.8 million people, will face severe malnutrition from November.

The combined effects of drought, conflict and economic downturn have severely affected the livelihoods, livelihoods and access to food for Afghans, according to a joint research by the Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Food Program.

Of those at risk, 3.2 million are children under the age of five who are feared to be severely malnourished by the end of the year, the report said.

According to a report by Voice of America, David Beasley, Executive Director of the World Food Program (WFP), lamented that the crisis in Afghanistan is currently one of the worst in the world.

It should be noted that soon, during the harsh winter, those parts of Afghanistan will be cut off from the rest of the world, where people rely heavily on humanitarian aid to survive the freezing cold months.

The Taliban took control of Afghanistan in August after overthrowing a Western-backed government. Economic sanctions on Kabul by the United States and other Western countries have since cut off the Taliban’s access to nearly ً 10 billion in Afghan assets.

Sanctions have increased the likelihood of an economic downturn that, according to observers, will exacerbate the humanitarian crisis facing millions of people.
