The prolonged war in Afghanistan has resulted in little by way of a proper emergency management system in the country. In a nation already struggling against poverty and malnutrition, this disaster requires urgent relief.
Millions of Afghans are currently facing huge humanitarian needs brought about by the country’s worst-ever drought, food shortages and vulnerable healthcare system. According to the UN, 18 million people are currently facing a humanitarian disaster, while another 18 million could quickly join them. Lives are being lost at a rapid rate.
