Mohebullah, janitor to a girls’ school, died of hunger today in Faiz Abad, Badakhshan.
Local sources say that he worked as the janitor to Al-Jahad girls’ school and had tried many times to withdraw his salary from a bank he had an account in, but due to long lists his turn never came.
This is the second known incident where Afghans died of hunger. Days ago, 8 children were found dead in Kabul who also seemed to have died of hunger.
Since Taliban came into power, economy has suffered significantly in all areas. Borders are closed and businesses have stopped operation. Unemployment rate has sky-rocketed. People are really suffering, there might be more cases in the coming days and weeks, since no country or organization seem to care about what actually is happening.
