KABUL: In a conference held late last week in Geneva, the international community has pledged $2.44 billion in assistance for Afghanistan humanitarian support.
The aid will go to help nearly 25 million Afghans dependent on humanitarian support to survive.
Currently, Afghanistan is facing with some economic and humanitarian crisis.
In a UN statement released at the end of the conference, the US led the list of pledges at the end of Thursday’s conference, committing just over $512 million in aid, for 2022. Other leading donors were the United Kingdom with over $374 million, Germany, with just under $220 million and China, which promised a total of $200 million.
There were a total of 41 announcements of aid, including 15 pledges specifically for the Afghanistan Humanitarian Fund. Some nations, including Spain and Iceland, also committed to funding for Afghanistan, for 2023 and beyond.
As fund-raising has so far secured only 13 per cent of the requirements of the 2022 Humanitarian Response Plan, pledges of support – which will continue for the remainder of the year – are urgently needed to ramp up deliveries.
It is worth mentioning that in the first two months of the current year, humanitarian partners reached 12.7 million people with life-saving assistance, prioritizing displaced and vulnerable people.
