According to Khaama Press, 79 percent of households in Afghanistan experienced severe water scarcity, which made it difficult for them to drink clean water.
Water shortages have been a problem in this country for many years due to droughts and other issues.
“The issue of water scarcity is serious. UNICEF would assist Afghanistan with addressing this problem. According to Khaama Press, Salam Al Janabi, spokesperson for UNICEF Afghanistan said that bringing clean and safe water to 9,000,000 people in the next year is a priority.
Afghan households are also concerned about the shortage of water. Kabul residents claim that the water supply has dropped significantly and that most wells are dry, which gives them new headaches in supplying clean water.
In these difficult economic times, drought and water scarcity have become new problems for ordinary people.
Already, people have experienced negative effects from poverty, hunger, unemployment, and security.
Khaama Press also reported that the inability to provide safe and sanitary drinking waters could lead to many diseases, especially among children living in rural areas.
Many provinces in Afghanistan are facing the critical issue of water availability. Kabul residents have found it difficult to get water due to the plunging groundwater level.
According to Khaama Press, there has been a 50% drop in the groundwater level in Kabul due to excessive water use since 2022.
