21-002-SP DERF Alert note Humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan - Danish People's Aid
Danish People's Aid has submitted an alert regarding the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.
After the Taliban took over the control of the country on August 15, 2021, the living standards and conditions of the entire population has deteriorated. Many people have lost their jobs due to the collapse of the previous government system at the centre as well as in the provinces. This situation has particularly affected women and girls, who are hindered in carrying on their duties in the government and non-governmental offices. With the collapse of the economic system, the vast majority of people are struggling to find food for themselves and their families. There are concerns that instability and upended humanitarian efforts, compounded by an ongoing drought, could further endanger lives and plunge Afghanistan toward famine.
