United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Asia Pacific has expressed concern over the ongoing humanitarian situation in Afghanistan and added that women and children are bearing the brunt of the crisis.

UNHCR Asia Pacific in a Twitter post said that millions of Afghans have fled the country while others struggling to find enough food and shelter.

The Twitter post reads that women and children must have access to lifesaving assistance that needs a large amount of donor support.

“Robust donor support is vital; women, girls, and their communities must have access to life-saving aid.” Reads the Twitter post.

It comes as the UN stats denote that nearly six million people are still internally displaced in Afghanistan who need support.

Being the worst humanitarian disaster on earth, over half of the Afghan population needs humanitarian assistance while 95 percent of the people are under the poverty line.
