UN Secretary-General to hold high-level event on the Afghan humanitarian situation

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will convene a high-level ministerial conference on the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan in Geneva on September 13, his spokesman said. According to reports, the conference will seek to expedite funding to continue the life-saving humanitarian operation, and seek full and unhindered humanitarian access to ensure that Afghans continue to receive the services they need. Appeal will be made.

Nearly half of Afghanistan’s population, or 18 million people, need humanitarian aid to survive, as Afghanistan faces an imminent humanitarian catastrophe, according to the latest UN figures.

One in three Afghans do not know where their next meal will come from, while more than half of children under the age of five are expected to be severely malnourished next year. According to the UNHCR, Afghans have one of the largest refugee populations worldwide. Dujarric said the United Nations is committed to providing humanitarian aid to millions of people in need, while also preserving development benefits to link the humanitarian response to Afghanistan’s medium and long-term stability.
