The United States has announced an amount of nearly $125 million in humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan, U.S. Embassy in Kabul said.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the U.S. Embassy said that the country has allocated the amount for the needs of vulnerable Afghans inside Afghanistan, including internally displaced persons, conflict and flood-affected communities, and Afghan returnees.
“This brings the total U.S. funding in this fiscal year to the Afghan humanitarian response to nearly $190 million, including for Afghan refugees in the region,” the statement said.
The United States urges all countries to make or increase their contributions to the UN humanitarian appeal for Afghanistan, which is currently only 27 percent funded.
The statement further said that additional support from the entire international community is essential to meet the urgent needs of large number of vulnerable people in Afghanistan.
