Secretary-General António Guterres,  said that since the Taliban take over the nation’s poverty rate is soaring, basic public services are close to collapse and, in the past year, hundreds of thousands of people have been made homeless after being forced to flee fighting.

“After decades of war, suffering and insecurity, they face perhaps their most perilous hour,” Mr. Guterres said, adding that one in three Afghans do not know where they will get their next meal.

 

Echoing his message, Henrietta H. Fore, the executive director of UNICEF, added that “Nearly 10 million girls and boys depend on humanitarian assistance just to survive,” “At least one million children will suffer from severe acute malnutrition this year and could die without treatment.”

As winter nears, the situation gets more dire day by day.
