The European Union has announced a significant humanitarian aid package of 61 million euros to continue supporting the Afghan people.
On Wednesday, the European Union made a significant announcement on its social media platform X, revealing a generous humanitarian aid package of 61 million euros intended to assist the people of Afghanistan. This announcement underscores the European Union’s unwavering commitment to supporting the Afghan population during challenging times.
It is planned that this funding will be used in various sectors, including support for nutrition, shelter, protection, and other essential needs for the people of Afghanistan.
The European Union has stated that this funding is allocated explicitly to earthquake survivors and newly displaced migrants.
According to the announcement, this new package from the European Union will help address the food crisis in Afghanistan, where nearly half of the population is grappling with severe food insecurity.
This assistance comes as the European Union had previously provided 94 million euros in humanitarian aid to the people of Afghanistan earlier this year.
A portion of these funds will be directed to earthquake victims in Herat, as OCHA had previously requested 93 million dollars to aid those affected by the earthquake in Herat.
