From Reuters Alert Net, writer Maria Caspani relays the appeal from OXFAM.
“Governments need to wake up to the gravity of this crisis and ensure they are ready to respond before the situation gets worse,” Asuntha Charles, head of Oxfam in Afghanistan, said in a statement.
Nearly three quarters of people living in the affected areas say they will run out of food in less than two months, Oxfam said.
“The drought has completely destroyed the wheat crop in some areas. People are reducing the amount of food they are eating and selling what little they have,” Charles said.
