The United Nations says Afghanistan is on the brink of a humanitarian crisis and economic collapse.

More and more children are becoming sick and slowly dying of malnutrition.

According to the U.N., more than one million children will die from malnutrition if help doesn’t come soon.

Desperation has led many to wait in food lines, some being funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development.

The country has been spiraling into crisis since the Taliban seized power two months ago.

The Biden administration has frozen $9 billion in assets along with other nations. They say any financial support will be given only if the Taliban proves it has become more moderate since the last time they were in power.

Other world leaders have promised more than $1 billion dollars in aid to prevent the looming humanitarian crisis.

Many worry it won’t be enough to bring the economy back from the brink of chaos or to help the country’s smallest and most vulnerable.
