United Nations: We need 90 million dollars to help Herat earthquake victims

According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Aid, at least $93 million is needed to help the 114,000 victims of the Herat earthquake.

According to Ocha, these donations will be used to meet the immediate and long-term needs of the Herat earthquake victims.

On Monday October 16, Ocha announced in a report that urgent aid is needed to meet the needs of the earthquake-stricken people of Herat in the coming winter. According to this report, temporary shelters, fuel, winter clothes and warm blankets are among these urgent needs.

It is also said that in addition to these, there is a serious need for food and water, cash, sanitary items and emergency aid.

With the report of this project, Ocha points out the role of international communities in providing immediate and humanitarian aid. According to statistics, successive Herat earthquakes have harmed more than 1.6 million people, of which 114,000 people need immediate assistance.
