As the harsh Afghan winter looms closer, recent surveys conducted by the World Food Program (WFP) have revealed that only five percent of families have enough to eat every day, while half reported they had run out of food altogether at least once in the past two weeks. For the first time, urban residents are suffering from food insecurity at similar rates to rural communities, which have been ravaged by drought twice in the past three years.
The situation is also dire among the middle classes, who used to be able to feed their families every day. Take action now! Help needy families through your relatives or friends. Please keep in mind that a single penny can make difference.
