MANILA, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- The Asian Development Bank (ADB) on Wednesday approved 400 million U.S. dollars in grants to protect the welfare and livelihoods of vulnerable Afghan people, particularly women and girls.

The Manila-based bank said the support, delivered through the United Nations (UN), will address emergency food needs, enhance domestic food production, and provide core health services for the Afghan people.

The project will provide off-budget direct financing to three UN agencies, helping to bridge the financing gap for immediate support.
