Aid to Afghanistan

Today the UK government announced a pledge to provide £286 million of UK aid to the Afghan people - providing life-saving food and emergency health support to those in need.

  • The Afghan people are facing shocking deprivation following the fall of Kabul, with the UN estimating around 10 million children across Afghanistan urgently need humanitarian assistance to survive. 
  • That is why the government has announced a further £286 million of humanitarian aid today to provide life-saving food and emergency health support, building on our ongoing support which has already helped to build 60 hospitals and supported the World Food Programme, giving emergency food to 4.47 million people.
  • We are rallying countries in support of the Afghan people and helping lead the way in providing essential, life-saving support.
