Afghanistan. A country that has experienced war since the 1980s and a war that spanned over 2 decades that has just ended. Politics aside, our concern is the people.
As a result of the constant conflict, the economic situation in Afghanistan has never been worse. More than 90% of the population are living on just $2 a day. According to the 2020 Doing Business Survey, Afghanistan was ranked 173rd of 190 countries for having a difficult business environment. This means it is extremely difficult for the people to actually work and earn a living.
So how does the population provide for its families?
The World Bank states that the Afghan economy is largely dependent on aid which was equivalent to 22% of the GDP in 2019. However, the amount of aid provided to the country is expected to decline by 20% in the coming years.
Human Appeal Australia has a long history in providing various forms of aid to the people of Afghanistan, in the forms of water wells, food & nutrition, emergency relief and educational programs.
Right now we are working with our field partners to provide food parcels to the thousands of displaced families that are out on the streets.
