Heavy rains and floods have killed at least 22 people in Afghanistan. Hundreds of homes and crops were badly damaged in the country. Disaster relief volunteers say the situation has worsened in Afghanistan, which is experiencing human and economic crisis.
The disaster has devastated 12 provinces in Afghanistan. More than 40 people were reported seriously injured. The worst affected are the western provinces of Badghis and Faryab. Disasters have also been reported in the northern province of Baghlan. Afghanistan has been experiencing a severe drought for the past few days due to the severe effects of climate change. This was followed by a sharp decline in crop production.
There is a threat that this could lead to a serious food crisis and poverty. About 3,000 acres of farmland were destroyed in the new flood alone. Decades of war between the Taliban and former government forces have severely weakened the country’s economy. With the onset of natural disasters, the stage is set for a major crisis. Convinced that the problem alone would not work, Taliban rulers reportedly approached international organizations for help. However he acknowledged that their numbers were not enough to defeat Taliban militants.
