Kabul, Feb. 21 (UNI) A fresh batch of 40 million U.S. dollars in cash that came as humanitarian aid reached the cash-strapped and war-torn Afghanistan on Tuesday, a statement of Da Afghanistan Bank (DAB), the country's central bank said.
This is the fourth batch of cash as humanitarian aid arrived in Afghanistan since Feb. 9 as part of the international community's support to help the economically impoverished country to enhance its foreign exchange reserve.
