The United Nations has said that there are 4 million people in Afghanistan who are barely getting even two meals a day. Most of these populations are from rural areas of the violence-hit country. Where people need wheat, fodder for livestock and cash assistance in winter. It has become necessary to help the families, the elderly and the differently-abled, who are facing food crisis, at the earliest. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization's Emergency Assistance Office said that 70 percent of Afghanistan's population lives by farming in villages.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has also appealed to the world community to give more than $ 600 million in aid to the Afghan people. It is said that in the event of the closure of humanitarian aid, instability in Afghanistan will increase and the atmosphere will worsen. Not only this, there is also the possibility of people dying on a large scale due to drought.
