Seven out of every ten people in Afghanistan are unable to meet their basic life requirements

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) reports that Afghanistan is in a deepening economic crisis and suffering economic insecurity under the Taliban regime.

The organization stated in a report released recently that 69% of Afghanistan’s population faces a shortage of necessities such as healthcare, essential goods, suitable living conditions and job opportunities, particularly for women. The collapse of the banking system in Afghanistan can be largely attributed to policies of gender apartheid against girls and women, which has had devastating consequences on the progress of the overall nation. 

Women, who are prohibited from working, attending school, or being a part of public social life, are unable to feed their families and do not know where the next meal will come from. Since the Taliban took over, they have prevented women from working with domestic and international aid agencies, which has further affected Afghan people and created a worsening humanitarian crisis.
