Afghanistan is currently experiencing the lowest temperature in recent times. The weather warning is that the temperature will remain low for another two weeks. Most of the people died in rural areas. The Taliban banned women from working in voluntary organisations. Following this, international voluntary organizations stopped working in Afghanistan. This has also hindered the provision of assistance to the common man.

Afghanistan has seen the coldest winter in a decade. About 70,000 cattle and other animals died, a spokesman for the state disaster management ministry said. Mullah Mohammad Abbas Akhund, the minister in charge of disaster management, told the BBC that many areas in Afghanistan are now on the verge of snowfall; He added that military helicopters were sent for rescue operations, but they could not land in the mountainous areas.

“We are concerned about those who still live in the hilly areas. Most of the roads leading to the mountains are closed due to the snow. Cars and other vehicles are stuck in many places. Many passengers died.
