UNDP Afghanistan joins the UN Secretary-General, the acting Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Afghanistan, and other UN sister agencies in expressing our heartfelt condolences to the people of Afghanistan, families, and loved ones of those who have lost their lives while wishing a speedy recovery to those injured.
“UNDP has deployed partners on the ground and started responding to the most urgent health and sanitation needs,” said UNDP Afghanistan Resident Representative Abdallah AlDardari “We stand in solidarity with the international community to the Afghan people and addressing priorities to the best of our abilities, helping rebuild their livelihoods, homes, and economy.”
Under the ABADEI programme, UNDP has mobilized $2.8 million to reach at least 5,000 families with cash, water and sanitation, shelter, and health. More partners are expected to join UNDP’s focus on reconstructing homes, hospitals, and schools through cash-for-work while restoring local businesses under the coordination of OCHA. 
“UNDP Afghanistan is reprioritizing our activities and remains committed as ever to stay, deliver and complement life-saving activities towards an early recovery,” said Abdallah AlDardari, Resident Reprentative of UNDP Afghanistan.
