95% of Afghanistan’s Population Faces Acute Hunger: WFP Report

Kabul – The World Food Program (WFP) reports that 95 percent of the country’s population does not have enough food for consumption, adding that hunger in the country continues to rise.

According to WFP, out of every 10 income-generating families, the income of eight families dropped significantly in January, with the most affected families in Kabul.

WFP has stressed these families have been forced to endure hardships without income in the cold winter. In addition, hunger has led to an increase in malnutrition in children, according to WFP.

Moreover, it adds that every month, people face new waves of severe restrictions on feeding their families.

On the other hand, WFP has pointed out that about two-thirds of all Afghans now turn to crisis strategies.

Meanwhile, the UN reports Afghanistan is currently suffering from high levels of poverty and facing one of the worst humanitarian catastrophes in the world.
