There is growing concern at the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan, with eight million people at risk of starvation this winter, according to UK aid agencies. Many countries have suspended or significantly cut funding to Afghanistan since the Taliban takeover in August. And aid organisations are launching a public appeal for donations to help alleviate the crisis.
About 80% of the former Afghan government's budget came from international development aid. And this government support has now been mostly suspended. But humanitarian aid has largely continued to flow.
