In Kabul, eight brothers, 4 boys and 4 girls who had lost both parents, died of starvation. They were between 18 months and 8 years old. “This was stated by Save the Children, which analyzed data from the United Nations, according to which children in Afghanistan suffer from hunger more every day and people who will reach levels of hunger from crisis or emergency will increase by 35% over the same period last year.
“In Afghanistan, more than 5 million children – the organization underlines in a statement – are one step away from famine and millions of young lives are at risk as the country is facing the worst food crisis ever. Winter is on the doorstep and 22.8 million people, including 14 million children, will be victims of emergency levels of food insecurity “. “It seems that there is no end to pain for Afghan children. After decades of wars and suffering, they are now facing Afghanistan’s worst food crisis. The situation is already critical, every day we see small children in our clinics with severe levels of malnutrition. because they eat nothing but bread crumbs. But when winter comes we will see children hungrier than ever “commented Chris Nyamandi, Regional Director of Save the Children in Afghanistan – Afghan children need help from all over the world to even have a chance to survive this crisis. We will continue to do everything possible to provide them with the life-saving services they need, but for aid to continue we urgently need governments to increase aid to the country. ”
