Afghan Agony

 Aid agencies in Afghanistan predict that a record 28.3 million people – some two-thirds of the population – will need humanitarian assistance in 2023, with 6 million of those already perilously close to famine.

Afghanistan’s economy is in freefall and food prices skyrocketing, many desperate families have taken loans or borrowed from neighbours, and the slightest setback can plunge them deep into debt.
