United Nations says people in Afghanistan are facing a food insecurity and malnutrition crisis of unparalleled proportions.

In a statement in Kabul, UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator, Ramiz Alakbarov said acute hunger in the country rose from 14 million in July to 23 million in March.

He reiterated to alleviate the impacts of hunger and malnutrition while giving communities means to protect and sustain their livelihoods in the future.

Alakbarov said UN and its partners will continue to focus on scaling-up response activities reaching previously underserved and remote areas that active conflict had rendered inaccessible.
