What do the Taliban have to say about all these starving children and people? How do they propose to make things better? Are they doing anything? Are they providing any relief? One assumes Taliban fighters are getting fed.

There don’t appear to be any news or reports on these matters, at least, I haven't seen any.

Well yes - I get the impression the Taliban are not that concerned, beyond the cynical warning that cutting off humanitarian aid wouldn't hurt them: “If they believe starving people to death will have the effect they desire — an uprising and toppling of this government — they’re sorely mistaken.”

As long as they themselves get fed, stay in power, and get to do the things that matter to them - like making sure women stay in the home and don't get educated - then they don't seem particularly bothered.
