KABUL (Pajhwok): The World Food Programme (WFP) assisted more than 24.5 million Afghans through emergency food and nutrition support last year.

The UN food agency tweeted: “From January to December 2022, WFP has assisted more than 24.5 million people through emergency food and nutrition support, the majority repeatedly.”

It wrote: “This is more than half of the total population of nearly 42 million people. WFP distributed over 1.14 million metric tons of food and transferred more than US$325 million through cash and vouchers.”

This humanitarian lifeline for more than half the population of Afghanistan was made possible by contributions towards WFP’s emergency assistance by the Afghanistan Humanitarian Fund, the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the Big Heart Foundation (UAE), Finland, the German Federal Foreign Office (GFFO), India, Italy, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Tajikistan, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the World Bank.
