The situation in Afghanistan is getting worse by the day after the Taliban took control over the country. At the same time, the humanitarian disaster has been getting deeper day by day, as the country struggles with the Corona epidemic and other diseases. Hunger and economic distress have caused Afghans to break their backs. Having reached such a desperate state, the Taliban-led government in Afghanistan has appealed for help worldwide.
Since the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan, relations between Afghanistan and the rest of the world have deteriorated. Despite the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the war-torn country, the official urged the international community to assist the country without considering its political issues. State-run media outlet RTA published a video broadcast by Taliban Deputy Prime Minister Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar in which he called the current conditions in Afghanistan "very serious." The country has not had adequate infrastructure for civilian employment for the past 20 years. Mullah Baradar stated that citizens all over the country are in urgent need of shelter, food, and money. Afghanistan needs humanitarian aid urgently in the current circumstances," he said.
However, Mullah Baradar, after appealing, also declared that the Taliban government was fully prepared to deal with the emergency, and directed government departments and ministries to assist civilians. The impact of global economic crisis and epidemics are also plaguing Afghanistan. The country has had severe snowfall and rain since the beginning of the year, exacerbating the situation for those in desperate need of humanitarian assistance. Humanitarian organisations have frequently warned of a potential problem in Afghanistan due to the extreme cold.
