Millions of Afghans cold and hungry amid funding shortages


Millions of people are facing months of hunger and bitter cold in Afghanistan this winter amid aid shortages. Once abundant, funding to Afghanistan has plummeted since the Taliban returned to power in mid-2021. Thousands of people are still sleeping in tents in Herat province after successive earthquakes in October destroyed or rendered uninhabitable 31,000 homes. Meanwhile around half a million Afghans fleeing deportation from Pakistan have returned in recent months to a country where unemployment is rife.
