Afghan Street-Food Vendor Faces Hunger Amid Economic Meltdown
A Kabul street-food vendor tells RFE/RL's Radio Azadi that he is struggling to feed his large family after the income he used to earn selling chickpea snacks sharply declined during the past two months. "People say Afghans are getting aid, but where is the aid?" asked the man, whose identity has been withheld for security reasons. He spoke on a radio program produced by RFE/RL's Radio Azadi. These call-in shows have become a rare platform to hear dissenting voices since the Taliban took over the country.
