As more Afghans are compelled to live on the streets and struggle to find food, the International Committee of the Red Cross stated that there is an increasing need for humanitarian aid in Afghanistan.
Millions of people in Afghanistan, including widows and orphans, have reportedly been forced to scavenge for food on the streets, according to the committee’s findings.
The Red Cross International has appealed to the international community for stepping up assistance to the destitute and in-need people of Afghanistan.
The Japanese Embassy in Kabul announced on Sunday that Japan has pledged to donate 5.5 million dollars in aid to Afghanistan’s health sector.
Meanwhile, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations also provides assistance to 38% of Afghans to help them avoid the negative effects of food insecurity.
Afghanistan and the already-impoverished people of Afghanistan are coping with a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan that is said to be one of the world’s worst crises, magnified by widespread poverty, hunger, unemployment, and the installation of the Taliban to Afghanistan as the governing body.
With the Taliban sitting atop the Afghan government, the already-precarious economy of Afghanistan which heavily relied on and still continues to rely on foreign aid was strongly disturbed by the international sanctions on the Taliban.
