Introductory text:

Since the Taliban took power in August 2021, cooperation with the Afghan government has been suspended. The Development Ministry is supporting the local population with additional aid funds. Our crisis response is part of the German Government's crisis package (600 million euros, including 350 million euros for humanitarian needs through the Federal Foreign Office).
