Ahead of a UN meeting on Afghanistan aid next week, the organisation’s CEO Daniel Wordsworth said the Afghan people needed life-saving aid funding more than ever as the country faces a humanitarian catastrophe. “We need to be saving lives right now, but our hands are tied,” he said. “The halting of aid as a result of United Nations Security Council sanctions against the Taliban could become catastrophic for the Afghan people. We urgently need a solution. We must do all we can to ease the suffering of children and their families.”
