Da Afghanistan Bank (DAB), the country’s central bank, took delivery of another cash aid shipment of $32 million on Monday.

Officials from the bank took delivery of the package and immediately handed it over to a commercial bank, DAB officials confirmed.

This comes after Saturday’s shipment of the same amount.

Under the guidance of the United Nations, Afghanistan has received over $800 million in cash aid over the past few months.

After Monday’s delivery, the DAB said it welcomes “the entry of currency into the country in a principled and legal manner, and appreciate the humanitarian assistance, and call on the international community to engage with Afghanistan in other areas.”

According to the bank, the board of directors of Da Afghanistan Bank believe that humanitarian aid through the banking sector will create transparency and facilitate the delivery of aid to the people.

Afghanistan, which has had a US dollar driven economy over the past 20 years, has faced a serious cash crisis since the fall of the Ashraf Ghani government in August last year.
