Partner Update: How UNICEF is Supporting Families Facing Drought in Afghanistan

news

Because snowmelt is an important source of water for crops and irrigation in Afghanistan, the rates of water and food insecurity have risen.
It is estimated that some 1.6 million children and 443,000 pregnant and lactating women suffer from malnutrition across Afghanistan.
This drought has affected more than one million people in 22 provinces and is projected to affect another 2 million.
“Preventing malnutrition is already a priority in Afghanistan,” says Adele Khodr, UNICEF Representative in Afghanistan.
