The Commission decided to provide €27 million for lifesaving supplies to the most vulnerable populations in Afghanistan which have been affected by the consequences of the conflict. The assistance covers areas such as emergency trauma care, food, water and sanitation, shelter and protection to newly displaced people.
Vulnerable Afghans in Pakistan would benefit from funding of €5.5 million, which is aimed at primarily helping Afghan refugees and those affected by food insecurity and malnutrition as a result of natural disasters. A further €5 million were allocated to support Afghan refugees in Iran and provide food assistance, shelter, health, protection, as well as education for vulnerable Afghan children.
