star this property answer text <p>The UK is extremely concerned about the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan and as a result of UK funding, up to two million Afghans will receive lifesaving assistance in 2018. Provision of humanitarian assistance is based on need. It includes shelter and heating support to help displaced people face the winter, as well as food assistance for those affected by drought, lifesaving health &amp; nutrition services, clean water, and demining activities. As recently announced at the Geneva Conference on Afghanistan, we have increased our funding for the humanitarian response to £67 million this year. We continue to press others to do more.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK continues to show leadership in responding to the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, with the Prime Minister recently committing £200 million of support for the 2019/2020 financial year. This funding will meet the immediate food requirements of over 3.8 million Yemenis for a month and brings the total UK commitment to Yemen to £770 million since the conflict began in 2015.</p><p>The UK only channels support through organisations with a strong record of delivering and monitoring assistance, such as UN agencies and international NGOs. These organisations continue to deliver aid in Houthi controlled areas, where the majority of Yemen’s population live, with the UN Humanitarian Coordinator working tirelessly to improve aid delivery and ensure those most in need are being reached.</p><p>Humanitarian actors often report facing bureaucratic obstacles, including waits for visas and multiple permissions to travel through governorate and district-level checkpoints. The UK continues to call urgently on all parties to facilitate safe, rapid, and unhindered access for both the humanitarian response and commercial supplies.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Period poverty is a serious issue in Zimbabwe. For example, recent reports show that some 62% of girls are missing school every month and 5% drop out completely due to menstruation. The Government of Zimbabwe has sought to address this through suspending import duty and value added tax on sanitaryware. Through our programmes in Zimbabwe we are currently supporting over 12,000 girls to stay in secondary school by providing a package of essential items including sanitaryware. In addition, the recently launched United Nations humanitarian flash appeal highlights procurement of sanitaryware as a priority action for specific groups.</p> more like this
