Afghanistan: INTERSOS calls to revert ban on NGO women workers | INTERSOS

We are deeply concerned by the announcement by the Taliban de facto authorities to ban women from working with NGOs. We expect that this announcement will be reversed, as such a ban would represent an unexpected and unacceptable step backward from what had been expected, and would impede the implementation of critical humanitarian activities, resulting in a reduction of aid provided to the most vulnerable in Afghan society. This could potentially put a further untold number of lives at risk. INTERSOS confirms its commitment to ensuring consistent support to its female staff, while upholding humanitarian principles in its activities
