6:21 pm
hardy had nothing to eat. her mother could no longer breast her and the family couldn't afford to buy milk. 14 days ago they brought her to this hospital and cobble with just because she was much worse before she fed milk every hour and she can keep it down to the best because the family situation has severely deteriorated in the past few months. oh, i still have skyrocketed. i have 3 sons and the daughter, my son, and we were able to buy food. but recent developments of hitches massively, especially the evaluation of the currency and inflation. i'm a widow and live in someone else's apartment ness sakina used to fee would normally look after 5 patients. now she has over 20. the number of people currently seeking hospital treatment far out strips capacity was going to get that issue for me.
6:22 pm
she must say more and more of the children. we see here a malnourished was this. when you go to our mission, we need more medicine, more space, more staff and other resources for the many patients. in view of me, recently the international red cross has been supporting the hospital with financial aid and medicine. to tara, come from a suburb of 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 will happen. last week they announced they would pay and they
6:23 pm
still haven't gotten to them. so tara has the equivalent of just under 20 years left from the sale of her ring. she doesn't know how she'll get by after that loan, whom she lou, my son and the son of a son. we can only keep the children here for a maximum of 2 months. we can't keep them any longer because we have to make room for other children, even including the who do then see which one will i don't want to saw. people come to us from all over the country in june. malloy jam economically. so the children only go home once that well enough, but often that back within a few months, when their parents have no more food left to give them. and the dollars jeweler so daily spoke about afghanistan, thermometer in crisis with the head of the world food program. david beasley, mister beesley, could you give us a picture of the humanitarian emergency unfolding right now in afghanistan?
6:24 pm
afghanistan was already one of the poor structures 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 is 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, one 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 i 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
6:25 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 neutrally. and dave 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 are hitting the wanted me in afghanistan. hard. should these measures be reconsidered? so the long term solution is not humanitarian aid. the long term solution is going
6:26 pm
to be the international community, figuring a path forward so that afghanistan can revitalize his economy and move on with his life. because we've got so many crises 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 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
6:27 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. and with the huge challenges facing of jonathan since the thought of on takeover, it seems almost trivial to think about its tourism industry. but prior to the taliban coming to power tourism did to create local economies that helped sustain communities of gone, struggling to different parts of their 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 large the deep blue lakes of bundy,
