Child Hunger in Afghanistan Among Worst in the World-World Bank

Children in Afghanistan suffer one of the highest levels of chronic malnutrition in the world, according to a report released Monday despite billions of dollars in aid that have poured into the war-torn country by the World Bank and the government.

More than half of Afghan children under the age of five go hungry, the report said, despite billions of dollars in aid that has come into the country over the years. But allegations of corruption within the Western-backed government of President Hamid Karzai are widespread.

“But the analysis in this report shows that poverty and food insecurity rates are actually higher in the more peaceful provinces,” she said, pressing for better targeting of aid to ensure it reaches the poorest people.”It is shocking to learn that children are amongst the most vulnerable segment of the Afghan population, and their lives that could be saved are at risk,” said Economy Minister Abdul Hadi Arghandiwal.

Starvation of children is only one measure of the savage, unnecessary U.S. war in Afghanistan. Last month, Amnesty International found that an average of four hundred people are displaced in every day in Afghanistan, bringing the total displaced population to approximately 500,000.

Amnesty Afghanistan researcher Horia Mosadiq said: “Thousands of people are finding themselves living in freezing, cramped conditions and on the brink of starvation, while the Afghan government is not only looking the other way but even preventing help from reaching them.”
