As per the United Nations, millions of Afghans who are at the brink of collapse could die of starvation. There is a need for urgent action to deal with the food crisis going on in Afghanistan.
Calling for lifting the freeze on funds for humanitarian efforts, the World Food Programme (WFP) Executive Director David Beasley told Reuters that more than half of Afghanistan’s 39 million population were facing acute food insecurity. They are marching to starvation.
Afghanistan saw the beginning of its economy’s collapse soon after the Taliban fighters takeover post troops withdrawal.
Also, the food crisis is exacerbated by the looming threat of climate change.
Additionally, the Taliban administration has been blocked from accessing assets held overseas. This comes as the world nations grapple with how to deal with the ultras.
