Germany Provides €277 Million in Aid for Afghanistan

Germany has announced that it provides a total of 277 million Euros for basic services (187 million) and humanitarian assistance (90 million) to Afghanistan in 2022. These fresh grants will be spent through the UN agencies and NGOs in the country.

“Against the backdrop of the dire humanitarian situation in Afghanistan, Germany ramps up its humanitarian assistance by another 90 million Euros with fresh grants to WFP and UNDP,” German Embassy in Afghanistan – currently based in Doha and Berlin – said in a tweet on Wednesday, November 24.

It added that the total humanitarian assistance of Germany for Afghanistan now stands at €331 million in 2022.

In addition, the Embassy said, Germany provides €187 million for basic services in areas of health, education, and food security for Afghanistan in 2022.

With this allocation for basic services, the total fresh grants of Germany’s aid for Afghanistan amount to 277 million euros.

According to the German embassy, all the grants are being spent and implemented by the UN agencies, ICRC, and NGOs.

On the other hand, the German Embassy indirectly condemned the Taliban’s recent arrest of human rights defenders.

Describing it as a “systematic violation of human rights” in Afghanistan, the Embassy noted that all Afghans must have the right to movement, freedom of expression, and peaceful assembly.
