Da Afghanistan Bank (DAB) on Sunday announced that a fresh $40 million cash package arrived in Kabul, and said this is the second cash shipment Kabul receives in less than four days.

On Thursday (May 11), Afghanistan’s central bank announced that $40 million cash aid, as part of the United Nations humanitarian aid had arrived in Kabul, and was deposited in a private commercial bank.

Since the return of the Taliban to power in 2021, the cash aid shipped to Afghanistan exceed $2 million.

Afghanistan’s central bank welcomed the shipment as part of the United Nation’s humanitarian cash aid and called on the international community for further cooperation across fields.

The way these funds are spent has always been a topic of debate, and donor countries, especially the United States, have prevented probing the use of these funds.

Previously, Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) had revealed that the United States donations to Afghanistan is not very clear, and the US Department of State had denied providing details in this regard.  

Some Afghan politicians have criticized the UN for continuously delivering cash to the Taliban administration, which helps the group finance their de facto regime.  

Whereas, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) had earlier clarified that cash shipped to Afghanistan is deposited in UN accounts in a private bank, and will be used by UN agencies solely for the purpose of humanitarian aid and other supportive programs. The money will not be handed over to the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the announcement said.
