Unstable security, humanitarian situation in Afghanistan worries UN

The deterioration of the humanitarian and security circumstances in Afghanistan are increasing the worries and concerns of the world humanitarian organizations and agencies, especially the United Nations.

The UN-organized meeting recently held in Doha came to stimulate international engagement on women’s rights, poverty, hunger, terrorism and drugs as key issues Afghanis are facing under the Taliban rule.

Women have been prevented from working for NGOs in a country with approximately 29 million people rely primarily on humanitarian aids.

This Taliban’s decision has been unanimously condemned by the UN Security Council as it said to be undermining human rights.

The UN Humanitarian Coordinator warned that Afghanistan was the world’s least well-funded country, with less than five percent funding pledged.

According to UN reports, over 28.3 million Afghans are now in need of humanitarian assistance this year.
