Worldwide donors have pledged greater than $1.1 billion to assist Afghanistan, the place poverty and starvation have spiraled because the Taliban took energy, and international help has dried up, elevating the specter of a mass exodus.
Throughout a U.N. convention searching for $606 million to satisfy Afghanistan’s most urgent wants, Secretary-Normal Antonio Guterres mentioned it was too early to say how a lot had been particularly promised by international locations in response to the enchantment.
After a long time of warfare and struggling, Afghans are going through “maybe their most perilous hour,” he mentioned, and expressed his concern concerning the threat of the nation’s economic system collapsing.
“My enchantment to the worldwide group is to seek out methods to permit for an injection of money within the Afghan economic system, permitting the economic system to breathe, and avoiding a collapse that might have devastating penalties,” Guterres acknowledged.
The Taliban swept again to energy final month in a lightning advance because the final U.S.-led NATO troops pulled out and the forces of the Western-backed authorities melted away.

Oh yeah, brilliant idea; wait for the US and all allies to withdraw their military forces and intel, AND leave the Taliban in control of the country, WITH 85 Billion dollars worth of top notch US equipment and weaponry, and THEN decide to send money and aid to "the people". Do these idiots seriously fkn believe that any such aid will benefit the people in that country who need it?!
UN a disaster like the WHO.
We already know, Justin Trudeau will continue funding the Taliban. "Foreign aid"
Can we just stop with africanastan already, it's so old, please just stop, nobody cares what happens there, it's on the other side of the world, let's just make friends at home and confin are concerns to the Americas.
God the UN is a worthless organization. They made their bed now they can lie in it. No Aid, No refugees!
So! Now you send Humanitarian aid? What’s next send back military aid?
Why are we sending money to the Taliban.
Translation: BUILD BELT N ROAD NOW !
Everyone sees which side you're on.
Don’t trust the U.N. one bit

Blessings Be All Devotion Captains I second your motions Mr. Guterres well said oh don't worry about the AI hiding it is still protective and supervised it isn't fake it is biological so varied still that's why "nerds" still worried in America education wasn't in style sometimes too that's what wrecked our family structures broadly speaking… Yes we have to keep the blood alive and that's all science and supports, excellent work!
The twenty year war in Afghanistan was a huge, huge mistake.
It was a giant distraction. It was always going to be hard trying to put a financial cost to the war.
Following the final withdrawal of US troops, President Joe Biden quoted two figures for the total cost of the war.
He said: "After more than $2 trillion spent in Afghanistan… [or] you could take the number of $1tn, as many say." Between 2010 to 2012, when the US for a time had more than 100,000 soldiers in the country, the cost of the war grew to more than $100bn a year, according to US government figures.
As the US military shifted its focus away from offensive operations and concentrated more on training up Afghan forces, costs fell sharply to about $45bn in recent years.
According to the US Department of Defense, the total military expenditure in Afghanistan (from October 2001 until December 2020) was $825bn, with about another $130bn spent on reconstruction projects.
That brings the total cost, based on official data, to about $955bn between 2001 and 2020 – close to the lower $1tn estimate given by Mr Biden.
The $2tn figure referenced by President Biden is based on a recent study by Brown University, which includes interest on debt used to finance the war and expenses such as veterans' care.
This study also includes spending in Pakistan, which the US used as a base for Afghan-related operations, and runs through to the 2022 fiscal year based on requested money.
It found that costs of the war (and future commitments) in Afghanistan from 2001 to 2022 amount to US$2.3tn.
The UK & Germany – who had the largest numbers of troops in Afghanistan after the US – spent an estimated US$30bn and US$19bn respectively over the course of the war.
The bulk of the money spent in Afghanistan has been on counter-insurgency operations, and on the needs of troops such as food, clothing, medical care, special pay and benefits.
Official data shows that since 2002, the US has also spent US$131.3bn on reconstruction activities in Afghanistan.
Some of this money has been lost to waste, fraud and abuse over the years.
In a report to the US Congress in Oct 2020, the watchdog responsible for the oversight of reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan estimated that about US$19bn had been lost this way between May 2009 and December 31, 2019.
Afghan people deserve help…
Sorry, there's no more money for donations. You've blown it all.
…..and where exactly does this $1 billion come from? hmmmmm?
They have allah. They don’t need help. What a stupid religion!!!
Aid for whom? To help Terrorists survive. UN is not really relevant in today's world. UN has become biased and ill managed by small group of permanent members in security council.
As bad as this will sound – if the Takiban can expect aid we now have ANOTHER COUNTRIES GOV NOT BEING PRESSURED TO PROVIDE FIR CITIZENS. Afghanistan needs to be SEALED OFF TO BE A DEPRIVE DESPERATE GOVERNMENT
The US is responsible for the looming human catastrophe.
$9.4 billion that belongs to Afghanistan was frozen by the U.S. and the IMF.
Many of the government and hospital workers have not been paid for many months.
Afghanistan is a poor country. It needs the funds to buy food, medicine and meet other basic needs.
If the 'international community' wants to prevent an economic collapse, one way would be to allow Afghanistan to gain limited and monitored access to its reserves.
Having no access to its funds will choke off the Afghan economy and directly hurt the Afghan people, with families pushed further into poverty.
GIVE BACK THEIR MONEY!
Haw much for Afganistan ,and how much UN put in there packets 85 0/0 ?
You are joking?
UN now talking like they're so passionate and kind. They'll ask the US Congress for approval first.
OIC countries with a combined GDP of 9 trillion dollars can easily fund Afghanistan's bail out.
US 🇺🇸 should cover the whole bill because they caused the mess
these are good news for AFG. but hope to focus on the usage of this money and create an applicable plan for it. it must use in rural areas where people are at a high level of risk.
Sir …we stand strong with such decision ..it's in right direction …people should always be protected against any disturbances and turmoil in the power circle …we also express concern on North Korea and Srilanka ..appreciate for u r needful perspective ….mimi and kaushik
Feed them freebies and then cry..
UN should not help Afghanistan. Hunger give Afghan men to fight against Taliban & Pakistan proxy more bravely & it also increase Afghan population in Pakistan.
It's good for humanity not to send any humanitarian support.
Really? US did their part for 20 yrs. A lot of soldiers killed, they even leave them as it is not worth killing people. NOW UN WANTED A HUMANITARIAN HELP? How dare you!
