United States Assistance to Flood Affected Afghans

In response to severe flooding affecting nine provinces in Afghanistan, the United States through USAID is working with partners to provide life-saving aid to people affected by the flooding.  This critical assistance will provide emergency shelter, hygiene kits, food, and high energy biscuits that serve as temporary meal replacements.

The United States is the largest humanitarian assistance donor in Afghanistan, providing over $232 million in FY 2018.  This funding includes water, improved sanitation, shelter, relief supplies, food, repatriation and reintegration, livelihoods opportunities, and health services for returnees and people displaced by natural disasters, drought, and conflict.
