The United Nations on Monday agreed to provide more than $ 1.2 billion in aid to Afghans and Afghan development. It is at a time when the country is in dire straits.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said it was a time to urge the international community to help Afghans in times of need.
The United Nations had asked for $ 606 million to help 11 million people in need of food, medical care, shelter and other necessities of daily life in Afghanistan. He also calls for respect for women’s rights and the protection of national security.
Afghanistan was already in a state of civil strife before the Taliban entered the capital, Kabul, and took power on August 15. Over the years of the war, the desert and the COVID-19 plague have led to an unnamed poverty.
The UN warns that crowds may not be able to get food at the end of this month, while food prices have risen and workers have no pay.
