Food Crisis in Afghanistan

The food crisis in Afghanistan is not just a humanitarian issue, it is a crisis of human dignity. No one should go hungry, and we must work together to ensure that the people of Afghanistan have access to the food and resources they need to survive and thrive.” – David Beasley


18 million people are facing starvation.

According to the United Nations, over 18 million people in Afghanistan are facing food insecurity, including 3.2 million children.
The ongoing conflict, economic instability, and COVID-19 pandemic have all contributed to the food crisis in Afghanistan, with many families struggling to afford basic necessities like food and water.

More than half of all children under the age of five in Afghanistan are malnourished, with nearly 1 million suffering from severe acute malnutrition, which can be life-threatening.

The crisis has been exacerbated by drought, with many parts of the country experiencing a severe lack of rainfall and water shortages.

The crisis is also affecting vulnerable populations like women and girls, who are often the first to go hungry in times of food scarcity.

Why we need your help

For decades, the Afghan population has been trapped in the middle of conflicts, with several related international and economic sanctions, a changing climate, and underemployment. The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated their problems, leaving more than 19 million Afghans in dire need of food.

The World Food Program’s (WFP) surveys show that over nine out of ten families in the country are food insecure, with half of them having to skip meals due to the lack of resources.

Eleven million people in Afghanistan are experiencing food insecurity, and 97 percent of the country’s population is on the brink of disaster. Nearly 20 million people in Afghanistan – almost half the population – are facing acute hunger, humanitarians warned in an UN-backed report, with the situation being further compounded by the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your donation can ensure that food insecurity in Afghanistan is addressed and that the most vulnerable are supported.
