Biden White House announces $308 million in humanitarian aid to Afghanistan

The U.S. is providing $308 million in humanitarian aid for the people of Afghanistan, the National Security Security announced Tuesday, as well as additional COVID-19 vaccines.

The announcement comes several months after the U.S. completed its military withdrawal from the country.

A statement from the NSC said the aid will help provide “shelter, essential health care, winterization assistance, emergency food aid, water, sanitation, and hygiene services.”

The U.S. will also provide one million additional COVID-19 vaccine doses.

Many lawmakers have been urging the Biden administration to take action to help avert an economic disaster in Afghanistan.
