To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what steps her Department is taking to provide humanitarian support to the Afghan people.
5 July 2022
Afghanistan continues to face a serious and worsening humanitarian crisis. The Foreign Secretary has committed a further £286 million for Afghanistan which reflects the UK's enduring commitment to the people of Afghanistan and follows the full dispersal of our £286 million commitment in 2021/22 to humanitarian partners. Our aid is vital and will provide life-saving support to the most vulnerable, especially women and girls and minority groups. We are also funding child protection support and supporting access to gender-based violence services. The Foreign Secretary has committed to prioritising funding for women and girls.
