Hsiao-Wei Lee, WFP's Country Director and Representative in Afghanistan said on Tuesday that the drastic measures have to be taken due to a “massive funding shortfall.”
“Amid already worrying levels of hunger and malnutrition, we are obliged to choose between the hungry and the starving, leaving millions of families scrambling for their next meal.”
The UN agency said that the funding for food and cash assistance is expected to run out by the end of October and the WFP has had to steadily cut assistance through the year to 10 million Afghans.
It said if no funding comes through, 90% of remote areas in need will be cut off without food and even in inaccessible locations, people will get no supplies during the harsh weather.
"That is the catastrophe that we have to avert," Lee warned.
