EU allocates nearly $150m to help Afghan people, focusing on women, girls

The EU announced, Wednesday, that it will release €140 million (nearly $150 million) in aid for education, healthcare, agriculture and women’s economic advancement in Afghanistan, Anadolu Agency reports. The funds had been frozen in December 2022 due to the interim Taliban administration’s ban on women working in non-governmental organisations, the bloc said in a statement. It added that the decision to release the funds was based on six months of monitoring and assessment of the “for women by women” principle, which ensures Afghan women and girls participate in all aspects of the aid delivery process.
