2:36 pm
she must say more and more of the children. we see here a malnourished was this one. do you tell me? sure. we need more medicine, more space, more stuff, and other resources for the many patients. in new york, michigan. recently the international red cross has been supporting the hospital with financial aid and medicine. the tara comes from a suburb cobble and brought her son to the children's ward. jo, most my husband is a teacher. he's not being paid for the last 3 or 4 months. i sold a ring, so i could bring my son here for treatment. the family can only afford tea and bread to eat. often there's not enough money for gas for heating or cooking food on . they say my husband will receive his salary, but i don't know if that all happened last week. they announced they would pay and

2:38 pm
afghanistan was already one of the poor sculptures in the world with train of 20 years, at least of conflict with the taliban. and now what we're facing is catastrophic. the number of people that literally are knocking on starvation door is 23000000 people out of 40000000 people. it is horrific. in fact, i've been there several times of the meeting with families, mothers and fathers. in fact, when mother was telling me how she had to sell her daughter to get food for her family in the hopes that her daughter could be well fed by another family. and so mothers and families are having to choose because they have no money do if they do have any money, do i buy a cookie? no, to feed my children, or do i buy heating? oh, to keep my children from freeze to death. this is how horrific it is in afghanistan right now. what kind of difficulties are you encountering in delivering food to the
2:39 pm
people in need? there, we've been operating in afghanistan before the taliban took over in and quite frankly, it's been quite remarkable. the access that we have, the taliban, i have met with our teams have met with out in the provinces as well as in cobble. and they have assured us allowing us to operate in partially independently, naturally. and they've honored that we've been able to operate do what we need to do to reach the innocent victims of this conflict if we get the money that we need . and that's our biggest limitation right now we can reach the afghan people without any one including the taliban, interfering with our operations in that extremely important for us. that is a humanitarian effort. enough sanctions and asset freezes have been applied to the taliban since they came into government and they're hitting the tanami in afghanistan. heart should these measures be reconsidered? so the long term solution is not humanitarian aid. the long term solution is going
2:40 pm
to be the international community figuring a path forward so that afghanistan can revitalize, is economy and move on with his life. because we've got so many crisis right now around the world. because if we don't have enough of money more wide, where am i going to get the money to feed all the children in afghanistan? am i going to take it from the children and syria, the children in a ethiopia, the children in easier? molly? so this is a very serious issue in the leaders around the world have yet to really sit down and find a pragmatic way forward. otherwise it's going to be catastrophic. as you've said, there's urgent need for funding, not only for afghanistan, but also for other emergencies around the world, like yemen and syria. you have many times appealed to the leaders and the millionaires of the world for funding. what has the response been so far? during this coven experience the world's billionaires have made unprecedented money
2:41 pm
over $5200000000.00 of net worth increase per day. all we need is one day's worth of their net worth increase to really address our short term crisis. is that too much to ask? i don't think so because the world needs the world billionaires who profited during coven, to help the world's poor david beasley, executive director of the world food program. thank you. thank you. with the huge challenges facing, i've gone on since the thought of on take over, it seems almost trivial to think about its tourism industry, but prior to the volleyball coming to power tourism did to create local economies that help sustain communities. i've gone traveling to different parts of the country, providing much needed employment for tour guides, boat operators and other professions. but since august last year old that has dried up leaving tourism industry workers in the lodge. the deep blue lakes of bundy,
