The infographic reveals where exactly and how much of the US foreign aid is going.
According to the chart, most of the aid is received by Afghanistan and the Middle East (as per the reports of 2019). The largest recipient is Central Asia's country, which gets nearly $5 billion in aid, which, however, is down from around $6 billion in 2018.
