"This is an emergency on top of an emergency. 19 million people are already facing acute hunger across the country, a severe drought and crippling economic crisis is pushing people to the brink," said Gordon Craig, Deputy Country Representative for WFP Afghanistan, in a press release on Monday.
 
"And now thousands have lost their homes after the powerful earthquake and desperately need food assistance and shelter. We are appealing to the international community not to forget the people of Afghanistan," Gordon added.
 
The 5.9 magnitude quake killed around 800 people, injured 1,500 others, and destroyed hundreds of homes.
