Over 24 Million Afghans In Dire Need Of Humanitarian Aid Says ICRC


The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has stated that more than 24 million Afghans are in grave need of humanitarian assistance. The ICRC also in a separate statement stated the concerns over the closing of many medical centres in Afghanistan.

According to the reports, the ICRC said “The effect of the banking and liquidity crisis is rippling across the country and huge consequences on the health system are being felt as multiple facilities are not able to pay salaries, or for fuel to run their generators. Ambulances can’t operate; food supplies are running short for the patients, and they lack adequate medicine.”

The report further added that when the Islamic Emirate swept into power, Afghanistan’s Central Bank assets in reserve were frozen, which severely affected the already feeble economy of Afghanistan.

US President Joe Biden earlier signed an executive order to direct $3.5 billion of Afghan assets based in US banks for Afghan humanitarian needs. A similar amount was reserved by Biden for potentially paying compensation to the victims of 9/11.
