Drought, economic collapse and hunger push Afghanistan to brink of famine
Failing socio-economic and political instability, decades of armed conflict, protracted population displacement, and recurring natural disasters contributes to deteriorating humanitarian crises in Afghanistan. According to International Rescue Committee, the country could see near universal poverty in 2022 with 97% of Afghans at risk. Afghans are running out of money while prices of food and medicine are skyrocketing. According to United Nations World Food Programme, more than half of Afghanistan’s population is facing acute hunger, and 3.2 million children are suffering from malnutrition. Kuchwan provides humanitarian relief and recovery assistance to those affected by humanitarian crisis.
