IDB allocates $24.6 million for health, education in Afghanistan

The Islamic Development Bank (IDB) has allocated a new $24.6 million assistance package for Afghanistan, primarily targeting the health and education sectors.

This funding, drawn from the Afghanistan Humanitarian Fund under IDB’s management, will support various projects in partnership with aid organizations.

These initiatives aim to enhance food security, healthcare, and education across different regions of Afghanistan, expected to benefit hundreds of thousands of people.

Collaborating with agencies like UNHCR, UNICEF, WHO, and the Norwegian Refugee Council, the IDB will facilitate the implementation of these projects, according to the Taliban-run Bakhtar News Agency.

Additionally, the bank has earmarked funds for improving access to clean water and supporting livelihoods in Afghanistan’s villages.
