OCHA faced with a lack of funds in Afghanistan

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has said it is facing a funding shortfall as it only has 50% of the money it needs for Afghanistan for 2022.
Melissa Fleming, the United Nations Global Communications Officer, tweeted on Wednesday, “The people of Afghanistan are suffering. They need our support more than ever. We need funding to ensure the UN can deliver life-saving aid.”
OCHA said the lack of financial budget, the increase in the prices of food and other goods in the world and inside Afghanistan has forced this department to reduce the aid process.
OCHA added that $2.2 billion of the new 2022 budget has been used with $542 million carried over from 2021, yet this money is 50 percent of the $4.4 billion needed to provide humanitarian assistance in 2022.
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Aid has previously said that tens of millions of Afghan citizens face food insecurity and 25 million Afghans live in poverty.OCHA faced with a lack of funds in Afghanistan
