Education and training are for "tomorrow" Food security is for today.
Exactly! The crumbling of the Afghan economy has begun already. Anyone can see that an immense humanitarian crisis is about to unfold.

Can or will the Taliban's newly acquired foreign allies lend a helping hand? Don't count on it!
When the US took out the Taliban Seems like there were billions($19 billion comes to mind but I am not sure) not millions in aid promised. Not sure how many of those promises were kept.

Given the CCP’s history, I am sure the CCP will send not one dime to Afghanistan that does not immediately benefit them, and they will not care in the slightest how many people die or are disadvantaged.

Given the history of Islam, ditto any muslim country.

However, they, and Russia, might do some pro bono murder and terrorism, again, when it suits them.
