The World Food Programme has announced that to reduce malnutrition in Afghanistan, they have distributed food to approximately 6 million women and children suffering from malnutrition.

The organization stated in a message on its social media platform X, on Sunday, February 18th, that these aids were distributed with the support of the CBPF institution.

Previously, the World Food Programme, a United Nations agency, had stated that they distributed specific malnutrition supplies to over 4 million women and children in Afghanistan.

This comes as the rates of malnutrition among women and children in Afghanistan have increased, becoming a serious concern.

Both the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) have consistently warned about the high levels of malnutrition in Afghanistan.

According to OCHA’s report, approximately 15.5 million people are facing acute food insecurity, with 2.7 million of them in emergencies.

The committee emphasizes that in the coming year, climate change, economic pressures, increased impunity, and reduced international support will accelerate humanitarian crises worldwide.

This comes as human rights organizations have consistently emphasized the need to address poverty and hunger among women and children in Afghanistan.
