Winter approaches in Afghanistan. The landlocked, mountainous country will see cold, dry weather with a likely food shortage caused by the Taliban takeover.

The snowfall season begins in October and, in the mountain regions, typically lasts until April. Since the 1990s, Afghanistan has been plagued by frequent droughts.

Additionally, the Taliban is under sanctions from the U.S. and the U.N. Some countries, including China, continue sending aid into the country, but not in amounts great enough to stave off starvation.

Reza with Global Catalytic Ministries says Afghanistan grows very little food, and imports will be hampered by blocked roads. “We are actually sending resources, financial resources, into the country. We are one of the only organizations that can do that right now in this crisis. We’re buying a lot of food for the believers and for the people who are in need all throughout the country.”
