The World Food Programme has announced that South Korea has contributed four million dollars to provide humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan.

The World Food Programme stated on Monday, February 26th, through a statement, that these aids were provided to support emergency food assistance and prevent famine in Afghanistan.

According to the World Food Programme, these contributions have been allocated to this organization through the South Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Additionally, Hsiao-Wei Lee, the World Food Programme Director in Afghanistan, added that the Afghans’ resources have been depleted, and their savings have diminished.

The organization states that due to budget constraints in 2023, their humanitarian assistance to 10 million people has been reduced.

Previously, South Korea had also contributed one million dollars to the Afghan Humanitarian Fund.

According to the World Food Program’s statement, last year it assisted 19 million people.

This comes as the World Food Programme announced a budget shortfall for providing humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan.

Amidst a dire humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, exacerbated by the forced deportation of Afghan refugees from neighbouring countries including Pakistan. The World Food Program’s announcement highlights the urgent need for international support to alleviate suffering in the country.

The forced deportation of Afghan refugees has worsened the already dire humanitarian situation in Afghanistan since the Taliban seized power. As the country grapples with widespread food shortages and economic instability, the timely assistance from South Korea underscores the importance of international solidarity in addressing the urgent needs of Afghan civilians.
