Many Afghan families who came to Kabul are sleeping in camps on the outskirts of the capital.

For many, Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, is already the last refuge.

Thousands of people flee from different parts of the country in the direction of the capital to escape the attack of the Taliban who regained control of several cities in the country in a rapid offensive that the Afghan army cannot contain.

The UN called on Afghanistan’s neighboring countries to keep their borders open as the number of civilians moving into the territory increases.

Food shortages are “serious”, informed officials of the World Food Program (WFP), of the UN, and warned of a humanitarian catastrophe.
