United Nations assisted more than 4 million people in Afghanistan, Afghans on the verge of starvation
The country is facing an economic crisis after the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan. For this, all the countries have sent relief. At the same time, the United Nations High Commission (UNHCR) said in a statement that nearly 90 percent of Afghan people are on the verge of starvation and that 1.1 million Afghans in more than 150,000 families have been assessed for humanitarian aid. At the same time, more than 40 lakh people have been helped.
UNHCR spoke about its collaboration with the World Food Program and the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund to assist the needy citizens of Afghanistan. Let us tell you that after the control of the Taliban in August last year, aid was interrupted. As well as many of the provinces, about 1,300 families in Panjshir Province in northern Afghanistan have been forced out of their living areas because of hostilities.
More than 20 million people are in need of aid in Afghanistan
Earlier in the year, the UN estimated that more than 20 million people in Afghanistan were in need of aid, Khama Press reported. Afghanistan's escalating economic crisis has hit small enterprises, slashed sales of private companies, and laid off more than half of their workforce due to a sharp drop in consumer demand for products, a new survey has revealed.
Small enterprises suffered the most
According to the survey, small enterprises have suffered the most. The poverty rate in the country has risen to more than 95 percent since the advent of the Taliban regime, while 56 percent are seeking to leave the country amid a drop in daily income. In addition, millions of Afghans are on the verge of starvation as the country grapples with a humanitarian crisis.
