U.N. Gets $1 Billion for Afghan Relief as Taliban Promise Access for Aid

The United Nations said Monday that it obtained $1 billion in pledges of fresh funds to stave off a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, after receiving a written assurance by the Taliban authorities that they would allow aid workers to operate freely across the country.

The U.N. was appealing for $600 million to provide relief to 11 million Afghans, including food distribution, healthcare and shelter, for the next four months. The U.S. and its allies say they are willing to provide aid, but not through the new Taliban government, which no country has recognized yet.
