In the past 6 months, over 270,000 Afghans have been displaced due to violence and insecurity. They join the nearly 3.5 million others who have had to flee their homes in recent years.
Decades of fighting and conflict have led to worsening conditions throughout the country, bringing about rampant poverty and food insecurity. Poor living conditions have only been exacerbated by the pandemic which has led to rising food prices and disruption to social services.
14 million Afghans are facing a severe food crisis, the majority of which are young children.
Experts worry that any failure to reach a peaceful agreement in Afghanistan will only lead to further violence and displacement.
Now more than ever, the people of Afghanistan need our support, to provide immediate aid and save as many lives as possible.
