Canada announces $56 million in urgent humanitarian assistance for the people of Afghanistan

By Caribbean News Global fav

OTTAWA, Canada – Canada remains deeply concerned by the critical and worsening humanitarian crisis unfolding in Afghanistan, says a Global Affairs Canada, press release, to which Harjit S. Sajjan, minister of international development and minister responsible for the Pacific Economic Development Agency of Canada, announced that Canada is providing $56 million in humanitarian funding in response to the appeals for 2022 from the United Nations and the International Committee of the Red Cross to support the Afghan people.

“Millions of people across Afghanistan require urgent assistance and I will do everything possible to get them the help they need. I remain committed to helping the Afghan people, and I will work with experienced partners and NGOs to see what else Canada can do to help the Afghan people,” said minister Sajjan.

The release noted that by working with experienced humanitarian partners, Canada can deliver much-needed assistance while ensuring this support directly reaches the most vulnerable people in Afghanistan.

“This funding will allow Canada’s humanitarian partners to provide life-saving assistance, such as emergency food and nutrition services and protection and logistics services, to ensure that humanitarian goods are dispatched and that workers continue to be able to respond to the crisis in the face of daunting challenges,” in addition, “Canada will continue to work with experienced partners and NGOs to see how it can continue to support Afghans in need.”
