The United Nations Coordination Office for Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has announced that Japan has donated $600,000 to the Afghanistan Humanitarian Fund.

OCHA thanked Japan for its contribution in a statement published on its official Twitter account on Tuesday.

Previously, the World Food Programme (WFP) had announced Japan’s $13.5 million assistance to the Afghanistan Humanitarian Fund.

This comes as Japan has had close relations with the interim government authorities for the past two years and has provided assistance in various sectors, including humanitarian aid, education, and healthcare.

According to the World Food Programme report, Japan’s aid to Afghanistan has totalled over $73 million in the past three years.

Meanwhile, some aid agencies have consistently warned of rising unemployment and poverty in Afghanistan.

According to the United Nations, only three per cent of the required budget to address the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan has been secured.
