Canada announces $56 million in humanitarian aid to Afghanistan

Canada’s Minister of International Development Harijit Singh Sajjan that his country will provide the people of Afghanistan with $56 million in humanitarian aids in 2022.

Sajjan made the announcement on Tuesday, December 21.

The Canadian Minister said that millions of people are in dire need of humanitarian aid and that he will do his best to do his part for the Afghan people in need.

He said Canada is severely concerned about the ongoing humanitarian situation in Afghanistan.

The announcement by Canada comes as Japan has also pledged to be allocating to Afghanistan a humanitarian package worth one hundred million dollars.

The Japanese government has said that the package will help provide food, water, and health services to the people of Afghanistan through 16 humanitarian organizations among them WFP and UNICEF.

This is the first time that Canada and Japan announce their relief assistance to Afghanistan after 15 August as the war-torn country has been given aids by almost all neighboring countries and the US allies.
