Number of Afghan children without enough food rises to 3.3 million

The number of children in Afghanistan not getting enough to eat has increased by 3.3 million in the four months since the collapse of the previous government, Save the Children has reported.
According to data from UN World Food Programme (WFP), as of the end of November, 98% of the population do not have enough to eat — an alarming jump from 81% before 15 August.
Afghanistan is facing its worst food crisis on record. This winter, 14 million children are expected to face potentially life-threatening levels of hunger, and rates of malnutrition are soaring.
With Afghanistan’s aid-dependent healthcare system on the brink of collapse, Save the Children warned that many severely malnourished children are unable to access the specialist treatment they need to survive.The post Number of Afghan children without enough food rises to 3.3 million first appeared on Ariana News.
