WFP Calls for more fund to Boost Afghan Aid

AT New

KABUL: The World Food Program has recently called for more funds to ramp up the humanitarian services to Afghanistan as the country is gripped with a severe crisis.

According to the WFP, nearly no family can access enough to eat and humanitarian needs that may reach the levels, that would be not within the WFP’s capacity to help.

Margot Van Der Velden, Director of Emergencies at WFP, while distributing food at a site in Kandahar province, said that it is a very desperate situation in Afghanistan and the need for assistance is very urgent.

“We have now a major economic crisis, so the assistance is very urgent, we need to come … and bring the food that is required. We need also the cash to flow into this country, need the jobs to be created and it is quite urgent that we get the funding to do so,” said Margot Van Der Velden.

She further said that at least 23 three million people in Afghanistan are facing an acute food insecurity situation.

According to WFP findings, 95% of all households do not have enough food.

This comes as the UN and other international NGOs have repeatedly voiced concerns over the possible collapse of the Afghan economy with more than half of the country’s population is facing starvation.
