Relief International is deeply concerned by the announcement that Afghan women are prohibited from working for NGOs.
Relief International has worked in Afghanistan for over 20 years, providing life-saving healthcare to millions of men, women and children. Our female staff are essential to our ability to provide vital health services to communities who face extreme vulnerability.
Afghanistan is facing one of the most severe humanitarian crises of our times. Relief International will continue to ensure the safety of our staff and seek resolution alongside the wider humanitarian community.
