WFP delivers aid to more than 17 million Afghans

Kabul, May 17 (Prensa Latina) The World Food Program (WFP) announced Tuesday in this capital that it provided food assistance, nutrition and other support to 17.5 million Afghans.

WFP is reaching mothers and children in some of the most remote and mountainous areas of the country. We have been able to provide food or cash to more than 17 million people, so they can buy food for themselves, said Waheedullah Amani, spokesman for the program’s Afghanistan office.

Meanwhile, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction said that about 70 percent of households reported being unable to meet basic food and non-food needs, reflecting the impact of declining household incomes.

According to economists, the reduction in aid from the international community will lead to further deterioration of the economic situation in the Central Asian country.

Due to the stagnation of the main factors of the economic sector, there is a need to extend international aid, otherwise, the economic condition of the people will worsen, economist Fahim Abassi warned.
