In Afghanistan, some 22.8 million people are facing food insecurity, including 14 million children.
The situation s expected to worsen, with the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) predicting that food stocks will run out halfway through winter.
UN News’s Jia Du spoke with Samantha Mort, Chief of Communication, Advocacy and Civic Engagement at UNICEF Afghanistan, who assured that all offices remain open and warehouses full.
For Ms. Mort, “there's no childhood” these days in Afghanistan. “It's all about survival and getting through the next day.”
