The World Food Program reports that approximately 23 million citizens in Afghanistan received food assistance in the past year.

The World Food Program has stated on its social media platform X that this year, due to the widespread financial crisis, food assistance has been reduced for 10 million people.

The United Nations agency has assisted 23 million Afghan citizens in the past year. Just a few months ago, the organization also revealed that an estimated 15.3 million people in Afghanistan are experiencing severe food insecurity, highlighting the pressing humanitarian crisis in the region.

In Afghanistan, 28 million people require urgent emergency assistance to meet their basic needs. However, due to budget limitations, the agency responsible for providing aid has been forced to curtail the support extended to these vulnerable families.

This reduction in support raises concerns about the worsening humanitarian situation in the country as millions of Afghans grapple with the consequences of conflict, displacement, and economic instability without adequate assistance to address their pressing needs.

The World Food Program adds that thousands of earthquake victims in Herat now require assistance rebuilding their homes and are forced to sleep outdoors in the cold weather.
