Afghanistan’s central bank-De Afghanistan Bank- in a statement on Tuesday, December 7 said that they received a second package of cash in humanitarian aids to the bank.
The bank did not close the exact amount of money though, the statement reads that the money was delivered to Afghanistan International Bank (AIB) through the central bank of Afghanistan.
The cash in humanitarian aid by the UNAMA comes as Afghanistan’s local currency is at its lowest point ever against the US dollar.
It is said that the lack of a dollar has caused the local currency (Afghani) to lose its value and ultimately made the prices of food ingredients to be double.
De Afghanistan Bank in the statement said that the problem of the banking system and local currency will soon be resolved and banks will deliver their best services to people.
In the meantime, officials in UNAMA said that the money is not given to authorities in Kabul but to private banks in Afghanistan so that they pay the bills of humanitarian activities of the UN.
UNAMA has announced to be given Afghanistan central bank $16 million in cash.
