As a direct result of prayers and support, BTJ just completed another food distribution in Afghanistan.
Pictured above is the food which was distributed by BTJ inside Afghanistan. The food distribution could not have come at a better time. According to the World Food Program, “nine out of ten people in Afghanistan do not have enough food to eat.”
The crisis in Afghanistan is exacerbated by the war in Ukraine and global inflation. One of the representatives with WFP, Ms McGroarty, said that 19 million people are suffering from food insecurity. “The scale of needs in Afghanistan are unprecedented in terms of hunger and food insecurity, and that’s really driven by the economic crisis and the continuing climatic shock,” she said. “They just don’t have the means to put one decent meal a day on the table. Over 90% of the population are just not getting enough to eat.”
The world has been watching helplessly as people suffer under the Taliban, as it continues to bring death through extremism. Since the Taliban has taken over Afghanistan, most humanitarian organizations are restricted with their work and prohibited from providing help. Entire Afghan villages are selling their young children and body parts in order to survive.
