Major NGOs halt work in Afghanistan after Taliban ban on female workers | The Hill

Must Read

Three prominent international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) stated on Sunday that they are ceasing operations in Afghanistan in response to the Taliban’s decision that women are not permitted to work for these groups.  

In a joint statement, Save the Children, the Norwegian Refugee Council, and CARE International demanded that both men and women be allowed to continue providing “lifesaving assistance” in Afghanistan. According to the non-governmental organizations, the Taliban’s decision will also damage thousands of employments in the country, which is in the middle of an economic crisis. The Taliban’s decision came as it also announced that women would be barred from attending universities or religious teachings in Kabul’s mosques.
