||<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 & 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>
