ON AFGHANISTAN, ON DEVELOPMENT | Afghanistan: ‘38 million people are suffering because a few hundred are in power’

A year after the Taliban took power, humanitarian needs are rising even as foreign aid has dried up.

During the former Islamic Republic, foreign aid grants funded 75 percent of public spending. Since the Taliban takeover in August 2021, the United States has provided $775 million in humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan, but the UN says at least $4.4 billion is needed to address the emergency needs of more than 24 million Afghans – 60 percent of the population.

    Thoroughly enjoyable and well documented. Your film was strikingly informative of the cultures and harsh living conditions of the people of Afganistan.
    It certainly makes you appreciative of the quality of life and opportunity we have here in the United States that we should not take for granted.
    I thank you for expanding my world vision through AIFF. Continued success in the future.
    I will be attending again tonight. Chris Adams
