WFP receives New Funding from Australia to support Drought affected People in Afghanistan

The Government of Australia has contributed AUD 5 million to WFP to provide food assistance for people affected by drought in Afghanistan. This contribution will enable WFP and partners, including the Government of Afghanistan, to help drought affected women, men and children make it through and build their resilience in this critical period by improving their food security and nutritional needs.

WFP will use the contribution for a joint response to the drought-affected population in Afghanistan’s 20 provinces. This includes sourcing wheat grain from the Government of Afghanistan Strategic Grain Reserve (SGR).

According to the Australia’s Ambassador to Afghanistan, Nicola Gordon-Smith, “Australia’s humanitarian assistance focuses on supporting the most vulnerable, with a particular focus on women, children and people with a disability.Australia is pleased to support this joint response by WFP and the Government of Afghanistan to help provide vital food assistance to affected families.”

Afghanistan is currently facing severe drought that has affected 20 out of the country’s 34 provinces. WFP is working with the Government of Afghanistan, mainly Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock to release wheat from its Strategic Grain Reserve (SGR). The wheat will be milled, fortified and distributed among families affected by the drought.
