Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Kabul: Some members of the British Parliament say that 28 million people in Afghanistan need humanitarian aid and Britain should continue its aid to Afghanistan.
They expressed concern about the economic crisis in Afghanistan and said that now is not the time to reduce aid to Afghanistan.
Dan Jarvis, a member of this parliament, asks the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of his country to continue their aid to Afghanistan.
Dan Jarvis added: This aid disruption comes at a critical moment as this country faces a dire humanitarian crisis. 28 million people need help and famine is happening.
Meanwhile, the British Secretary of State for International Development says that forty-seven percent of aid organizations in Afghanistan have stopped their activities due to the ban on women from working.
Andrew Mitchell, Minister of State for International Development Affairs, said about this: About 30 to 40 percent of the employees of non-governmental organizations throughout Afghanistan are women and they are important for carrying out humanitarian activities. They care for the population that men do not have access to (women), and provide vital and life-saving assistance to women and girls.
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Aid or "OCHA" has said in a report that they have provided humanitarian aid to 25.5 million tons in 2022, but a number of citizens of the country criticize the lack of transparency in the distribution of aid.
