19 Million Afghans Face Food Insecurity, Says WFP

Tuesday, 08/16/2022

Nearly 19 million people in Afghanistan face severe food insecurity and six million people are on the brink of famine, the World Food Programme (WFP) announced on Tuesday.

According to WFP, the price hike has caused the hunger situation to escalate and $960 million in aid is needed for the rest of 2022.

WFP warned of worsening humanitarian situation in Afghanistan a day after the US announced on Monday that it has ceased talks on the release of Afghanistan’s frozen assets.

The US’ latest stance is due to the Taliban’s failure to guarantee that Afghanistan will not be a safe haven for terrorists.
