US Contributes Additional $125mn In Humanitarian Assistance to Afghanistan

The United States announces an additional amount of nearly $125 million in humanitarian assistance to meet 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 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.  Additional support from the entire international community is essential to meet the urgent needs of large number of vulnerable people in Afghanistan.  

The additional U.S. funding announced today will support life-saving activities that provide  emergency food, nutrition, clean drinking water, sanitation and hygiene, emergency health, disaster preparedness and risk reduction, shelter, protection, humanitarian coordination and logistics, and non-food items and relief commodities.  It also supports refugee repatriation grants, education, livelihoods and other efforts to promote long-term integration of returning refugees.
