UNAMA Announces $35 m for Drought-Affected Families

The United Nations Deputy Special Representative for the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) Toby Lanzer announced in a statement on twitter that UNAMA is going to allocate $35 million to help families who have been affected by the drought in Afghanistan.

In his statement, Mr Lanzer wrote that the fund is “to help families struck by drought meet priority need: food, fodder and seed for people in rural areas and shelter for people who have been displaced to towns and cities.”

Drought has been a major problem in Afghanistan and the country is one of those countries which contributes least to global warming and climate change but has to bear the brunt of it in a brutal way.
