Afghanistan’s plight

President Erdogan had also announced on Wednesday that the country would be sending a “charity train” to Afghanistan carrying emergency goods.

The train, carrying 700 tons of food, clothing, and health and emergency goods will be sent with the support of 10 non-governmental organizations.

Aid agencies describe Afghanistan’s plight as one of the world’s most rapidly growing humanitarian crises.

The Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan in August 2020 led international donors to immediately suspend most non-humanitarian funding and freeze billions of dollars’ worth of assets.

As a result, most health clinics have closed and the economy has spiralled downward. The country is currently facing an ongoing drought and hunger crisis and a possible fourth wave of Covid-19.

Half the country’s population now needs humanitarian assistance to survive, with more than twenty million people on the brink of famine – double the number from last year.
