The principals of the Inter-Agency Standing Committee of the United Nations (UN) on Thursday appealed for donors to help pool an additional 800 million dollars in funding for humanitarian aid in Afghanistan.

“Timely funding saves lives, protects livelihoods, eases suffering and prevents further displacement.

“A total of 1.3 billion dollars is required to reach almost 16 million people with humanitarian assistance in Afghanistan.

“Only 37 per cent of required funds have been received, leaving a shortfall of almost 800 million dollars,’’ the statement said.
