UN agency: More than 634,000 Afghans displaced in 2021

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in the war-torn country said on Thursday that, more than 634,000 Afghans have been internally displaced by conflicts in 2021.

As per a report the OCHA said, a total of 634,800 Afghan people had been verified as having been displaced by conflicts as of 12th September 2021, out of which 282,246 displaced people had received assistance.

The report came as the security situation in Afghanistan has remained stable since the Taliban’s takeover of the nation in mid-August.

Afghan officials and humanitarian agencies have expressed concern over the living condition of the displaced families in the nation since it affected the lives of women and children as they do not have access to health facilities and schooling.

More than 28,000 Afghans have been also affected by natural disasters across Afghanistan starting this year, according to the figures provided by OCHA.

On Monday, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the possibility of a complete economic collapse in Afghanistan was “serious” and highlighted an urgent need for funding support at a high-level ministerial meeting on Afghanistan’s humanitarian situation in Geneva.

On Tuesday, the UN appealed to the countries pledging $1.2 billion in relief for Afghanistan to take action quickly.
