IDPs Recieved Humanitarian Aids in Afghanistan As Fighting Intensified: OCHA

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in its Weekly Humanitarian Update report which was released on Wednesday said that the Internaly Displaced Persons (IDPs) have received aids as fighting intensified in Afghanistan.

According to the report, 1,660 IDPs received humanitarian assistance in the southern provinces, almost 26,000 people received humanitarian aid in the eastern provinces and 16,975 people received winter assistance in the centre of the country.

The Global Humanitarian Review 2020 states that around 168 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance.

While humanitarian workers carry a heavy burden, millions of people in need face a daily struggle to survive, to support their families.

Among them are the victims of Afghanistan’s enduring conflict, which has forcibly displaced people for more than four decades and continues to claim thousands of civilian lives each year.
