Griffiths further explained that it was the cessation of large-scale aid that put Afghanistan in a critical state. According to him, the world must immediately provide US$770 million (Rp11.4 trillion) emergency fund to help Afghanistan get out of the crises.
“Poverty is getting worse, the population is still growing, and the de facto government doesn’t have the budget to invest in their own future. It was clear to us that some of the development assistance had to restart,” Griffiths said.
He stated that assistance should be given to Afghans immediately, otherwise, other crises would befall Afghans and add to their misery. (un)
