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).
