Humanitarian groups need $550m to confront worsening Afghan crisis
Humanitarian groups say they need five hundred and fifty US million dollars to aid the most vulnerable in Afghanistan.
The appeal was launched during a lunch meeting between United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator Mark Bowden with Afghanistan's chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah in Kabul on Saturday.
Bowden says the current scale of need in Afghanistan calls upon the humanitarian community to deliver increased levels of assistance to ensure the lives of many Afghans.
Abdullah said the displaced and the tens of thousands of refugees returning from neighboring countries are in dire need.
