CGTN published this video item, entitled “One year of Taliban rule in Afghanistan: Many downs but some ups too” – below is their description.
With Afghanistan marking one year of the Taliban’s return to power, The Hub with Wang Guan looks at people’s lives in the country, especially women and children. One silver lining is thousands of internally displaced Afghans are returning home, supported by cash assistance from China. However, the impact of the humanitarian crisis on children is “heart-wrenching,” according to Samantha Mort, UNICEF’s chief of communication, advocacy & civic engagement in Afghanistan. She talks of thousands of youngsters being pulled out of school by parents to beg on streets, and young girls being married off much earlier in exchange of dowry. But despite the insecurity and poverty, humanitarian work is taking place.CGTN YouTube Channel
