Taliban in power in Afghanistan: over $1 billion in international aid raised for Afghanistan

Eva Deschamps / September 14, 2021

  

The international donors' conference for Afghanistan held on Monday in Geneva has raised more than one billion dollars, said the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres.

 
The United Nations estimates that the country needs more than $600 million to avoid a food crisis and the collapse of public services.
 
Food shortages have worsened dramatically since the return of the Taliban to power.
 
The secretary-general has not yet said how much of the money raised will go directly to the UN emergency budget for the next few months and how much will come afterwards or in another form.
