United Nations made the "biggest-ever appeal" for humanitarian aid for a country on Tuesday. It wants USD4.4 billion for Afghanistan to prevent the "world's most rapidly growing humanitarian crises" from deteriorating further. "This is the largest ever appeal for a single country for humanitarian assistance, and it is three times the amount needed and actually fund-raised in 2021," UN aid chief Martin Griffiths said.
