The recent floods in Afghanistan have been devastating, with more than 300 fatalities in Baghlan and widespread destruction of homes. The World Food Programme is providing fortified biscuits to survivors as part of relief efforts. Other provinces such as Badakhshan, Ghor, and Herat have also been severely impacted by the floods, leading to significant financial losses.

Emergency personnel are working tirelessly to search for victims buried under the mud and rubble, with fears that the death toll may increase further. The Taliban government has initiated evacuation and relief efforts, including distributing food, medicine, and first aid to those affected. The country has seen a series of floods over the past few weeks due to unusually heavy rainfall, causing devastation and displacement for many residents.
