Reiterating concerns about the lack of funds for aid organizations to help the people of Afghanistan, recently the director of the World Food Program said that if they do not receive enough funds, they will leave Afghanistan.
The UN World Food Program’s executive director Cindy McCain in an interview with ABC's "The Week" said the WFP is facing a global funding crisis, and in Afghanistan, they do not have enough money to even get through October.
"Unless we can build up some funding for Afghanistan, we'll have to pull it completely out." Said Cindy McCain.
Meanwhile, some Kabul residents said that they need humanitarian aid more than ever in the upcoming winter and they asked aid organizations to continue providing more aid.
“The government doesn't help; the institutions don't help. We have been working for three or four years. We haven't seen anyone help us,” said Mohammad Nabi, a Kabul resident.
The Ministry of Economy said that the ministry has undertaken programs to reduce poverty in the country.
“The activity of aid agencies has decreased due to the lack of funding resources compared to last year…,” said Abdul Rahman Habib, spokesman for the Ministry of Economy.
Earlier, the World Food Program said that 15 million people in Afghanistan are facing food insecurity.
