ON AFGHANISTAN | Hunger crisis – 6 million people at “near-famine conditions”

August 4, 2022

A Taliban fighter stands guard as people receive food rations distributed by a Chinese humanitarian aid group, in Kabul, Afghanistan, Saturday, April 30, 2022.

19 million people in Afghanistan will encounter “potentially life-threatening levels of hunger” from June to November of this year, while 6 million people will be under “near-famine conditions.”

The lack of food will leave 1.1 million children at risk of death due to malnourishment if they do not receive more help.
