EU continues donation to vulnerable Afghans

The European Union (EU) has committed to donating €12 million to those in need in Afghanistan. The EU stated, in a newsletter, that this financial aid is allocated to support the people of Afghanistan, who are facing the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. “In the current circumstances, the European Union’s allocation of €12 million to the impoverished people of Afghanistan is truly a significant achievement. Currently, we are in dire need. It has been several decades since the Afghan people are provided with assistance, but infrastructural projects have not been adequate ly implemented thus far,” said Abdul Basir, an economist. He stated that the conditions are now ripe for the United Nations and other organizations to fundamentally support the people, as security is ensured countrywide, and donor countries shall contribute more to improve employment and living conditions in Afghanistan compared to the past. But to what extent has the humanitarian aid to Afghanistan been beneficial? The Afghan citizens believe the current government of Afghanistan should take this matter seriously and have public oversight to ensure whether the aid is granted to the eligible person. Global statistics indicate that many Afghan people are facing food shortages. However, insufficient humanitarian aid has deeply concerned the people. Humanitarian organizations shall pay attention to the people in need in Afghanistan so that they can be rescued from this humanitarian crisis. Meanwhile, the Ministry of Economy states that it is necessary to continue receiving more aid to address the economic crises in the country. “We welcome providing new assistance by the European Union, and we urge all international institutions, especially those of Islamic countries, to spare no provide assistance to the people of Afghanistan,” said Abdul Latif Nazari, the deputy minister of Economy. The latest statistics provided by the OCHA (United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs) indicate that nearly 29 million people in Afghanistan are in need of humanitarian assistance, and this organization requires over $2.2 billion to provide aid to 20 million people in the country.
