The United Nations has appealed to countries that pledged 1.2 billion US dollars in relief for Afghanistan to quickly release the funds to turn money into food, health care and protection for victims.

In a statement, the spokesman for UN Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric said the WFP is also pre-positioning food and other stocks at strategic border points in Pakistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan in anticipation of high food needs and further disruptions to supply chains.
