14 million people in Afghanistan are facing acute food insecurity, and an estimated 3.2 million children under the age of five expected to suffer from acute malnutrition by the end of the year.


At least 1 million of these children are at risk of dying due to severe acute malnutrition without immediate treatment.


According to WFP surveys 95 per cent of households in Afghanistan are not consuming enough food, adults are eating less and skipping meals so their children can eat more.

Food Insecurity

Over half of Afghanistan’s population lives below the poverty line, and food insecurity is on the rise, largely due to conflict and insecurity cutting off whole communities from livelihood opportunities. 14 million people are identified as food insecure, including 550,000 who have been displaced by conflict since the beginning of the year.


Undernutrition is of particular concern in women, children, displaced people, returnees, households headed by women, people with disabilities and the poor. Despite progress in recent years, undernutrition rates are now increasing, and 2 million children are malnourished.

Displaced Families + Covid-19

Afghanistan already had 3.5 million internally displaced people before the Taliban took over. More than a half-million Afghan civilians have been displaced this year, UNHCR estimates


“Displaced people congregating in cities usually wait in line for water rations delivered by tankers, and they are unsure when their next meal will come.”


The displaced people are already vulnerable: they have trauma, stress, anxiety, injuries, hunger, sickness and now Covid-19 being added on top of all that. Worst of all, with winter just right around the corner, things are looking more bleak than ever for the millions of afghans that are displaced.

Winter is Coming

With winter fast approaching, it is now a race against time to assist Afghan families also lacking access to safe water and health and nutrition services.

“As more families struggle to put food on the table, the nutritional health of mothers and their children is getting worse by the day,” said Hervé Ludovic De Lys, UNICEF Representative in Afghanistan.

“Children are getting sicker and their families are less and less able to get them the treatment they need. Rapidly spreading outbreaks of measles and acute watery diarrhoea will only exacerbate the situation.”

Economic Collapse & Lack of Aid

Afghanistan is part of a nation facing potential economic collapse, and before the Taliban takeover, nearly half of the country lived in poverty — a number likely to have increased since August.


Monetary aid that used to be provided by other nations, the source of an estimated 75 percent of the country’s government funding, is likely to dry up under Taliban control.

This lack of aid, paired with exponentially increasing food prices, is likely to leave millions hungry.
