We stand with the people of Afghanistan to support a more stable, peaceful future for the country. Following our announcement of 18 August, total UK aid to Afghanistan this year is now £286 million, one of our largest bilateral programmes. £30 million has been made available to humanitarian partners to support neighbouring countries which experience a significant increase in refugees to provide essential services and supplies such shelters and the setting up of sanitation and hygiene facilities.
