UNOCHA, in its twitter statement, insisted on an early humanitarian funding for the Afghan population, while pointing out that aid agencies could maintain winter preparation activities, support families during planting season and carry out prevention measures to face floods due to heavy rains.

After years of conflict and instability, the economic and political situation brought more problems to the war-torn Central Asian country hit by recurrent natural disasters, chronic poverty, and diseases, including the Covid-19 pandemic.
