Saudi Arabia contributed humanitarian aid, including 1,500 bags of flour in the western province of Herat, Afghanistan, on Saturday.

According to the report, the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) has contributed humanitarian aid, including 1,500 bags of flour, to families affected by floods in Herat province.

The humanitarian aid benefited 9,000 people from the donation, which came as part of the Kingdom’s efforts to support those worst hit by the natural disaster, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

Earlier in June, the Organization distributed 1,500 Food Baskets in Herat Province to families affected by floods and needy households, which counted 9,000 beneficiaries.

Human Rights Watch report states, “Afghanistan remains one of the world’s worst humanitarian disasters.”

The report said that two-thirds of the country’s population is food insecure, including 875,000 children facing acute malnutrition in which women and girls remain most at risk, the Organization added.

Due to the ongoing crisis, the United Nations has two crucial but seemingly conflicting obligations in Afghanistan: continuing to help those in need and maintaining pressure on the Taliban to stop their appalling human rights violations.

The initial crisis was brought on by the sudden stoppage of most Western aid following the Taliban takeover in August 2021. Still, the Taliban’s increasingly harsh tactics, including forbidding women from working for the UN and humanitarian organizations, have worsened things considerably.
