Starvation in Afghanistan, people sell children and body parts: WFP

(MENAFN- Khaama Press)

World Food Program has again expressed deep concern over the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and added that the Afghan people have resorted to selling their children and parts of their bodies to survive.

Speaking in an interview with Deutsche Welle, head of WFP David Basely asked the international community to expedite aid delivery to Afghanistan as over half of the population is starving in the country.

David Basely reiterated that if billionaires of the world allocate the income of their single day to Afghanistan, it will end the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.

Basely added that lack of cash is the real challenge in Afghanistan not lack access of people in need to relief assistance.

The WFP has estimated that they will need $2.6 billion to provide foodstuff to people in need in Afghanistan in the current year.

The Afghan people have been going through the worst humanitarian situation in decades after the Taliban takeover on August 15 last year but the IEA has assured of special plans to end poverty in the country.
