Description : As winter sets in across Afghanistan and the economic crisis is worsening, more than half the population (24 million people) need humanitarian assistance and half (20 million people) are acutely food insecure.
The deepening economic crisis further impacted by international sanctions and the economic consequences of the Russia-Ukraine international armed conflict makes it impossible for millions of Afghans to make ends meet. Wheat, cooking oil and fertilizer prices have risen. People have lost their income sources and used up their financial reserves.
Mother of five, Mahjabeen says: “Winter is already here, and we don’t have anything to burn to warm my children. I get very sad to see them in this situation when they don’t even have clothes to wear.”
Child malnutrition cases are already 90% higher this year compared to all of 2021, rising from 33,000 cases to over 63,000 so far this year. Meanwhile, at an ICRC-supported children’s hospital in Kabul, the number of children under 5 being treated for pneumonia has risen 55 percent in 2022 versus the same period last year.
To provide life-saving assistance, the ICRC is supporting hospitals in Afghanistan paying for medical supplies, running costs and salaries for nearly 10,500 health workers – a third of whom are women. Those health services reach an estimated population of 26 million people. This year, the ICRC has also provided multipurpose cash grants to over 10,000 vulnerable families (80,000 individuals) across Afghanistan to help them meet their essential needs.
