NGO Warns That , Almost 10 Million Children , Are Starving in Afghanistan.
Save the Children warns that approximately
9.6 million children in Afghanistan are facing daily
food insecurity amid a deepening economic crisis.
Al Jazeera reports that Afghanistan's economic crisis is the result of a continuing drought and has been exacerbated by Russia's invasion of Ukraine. .
A report released by Save the Children on May 10
said that "immediate food assistance”
was necessary to save lives in the short-term. .
The international non-governmental organization
(NGO) also warned that aid alone was , “not enough to tackle the country’s
worst hunger crisis on record.".
Despite a significant amount of food
aid reaching families in recent months,
19.7 million children and adults, almost 50%
of the population, are still going hungry
and need urgent support to survive, Save the Children report, via Al Jazeera.
Al Jazeera reports that Afghanistan has been cut off from international financial services since August 15 when the Taliban took over the country.
Nearly $10 billion of the country's assets
were frozen by the United States,
triggering a nationwide banking crisis.
As a result of sanctions,
millions of dollars worth of
international aid has disappeared. .
Every single day our front-line health
workers are treating children who are
wasting away in front of our eyes because
they’re only eating bread once a day
– and those are the lucky ones, Athena Rayburn, Save the Children’s director of advocacy, communications and media, via Al Jazeera.
Children in Afghanistan have
never known a life without conflict
and if action is not taken soon, they will
not know a world without gnawing
hunger and empty stomachs, Athena Rayburn, Save the Children’s director of advocacy, communications and media, via Al Jazeera

The Prince of Wales has paid tribute to journalists working to ensure the public has the "impartial truth" from conflict zones as he marked the 90th anniversary of BBC World Service. Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall praised BBC staff for their work covering wars in Ukraine and Afghanistan, during a visit to the corporation, and Charles told broadcasters Lyse Doucet and Clive Myrie "you're incredible, but it can't be easy". During the visit, Charles appeared surprised when a young Afghan woman, who was part of an emergency evacuation of BBC staff from Kabul last August, thanked him for "saving my life".

Sikhism is a religion and philosophy that originated in the late 15th century in the Punjab region of India. Sikhs are the group's members. Gurmat (Punjabi: "the Way of the Guru") is the name given to the Sikh faith. Sikhism was founded by Guru Nanak (1469–1539) and led by a succession of nine additional Gurus, according to Sikh belief. Sikhs believe that a single spirit possessed all ten human Gurus. Following the death of the 10th Guru, Guru Gobind Singh (1666–1708), the immortal Guru's spirit was transferred to the sacred scripture of Sikhism, Guru Granth Sahib ("The Granth as the Guru"), also known as the Adi Granth ("First Volume"), which became the single Guru. There were nearly a billion people in the early twenty-first century.
