Banning Afghan women from working to hit most vulnerable, UN warns

United Nations, Dec 30 (Prensa Latina) Banning Afghan women from working will hit the most vulnerable people in this country, according to a report of 12 UN agencies and 8 NGOs released on Friday.

The report indicates that over 28 million people need assistance to survive the threat of famine and winter. However, aid agencies were forced to stop some programs due to the lack of female staff.

The report, published by the official website of the United Nations (UN), urges to revoke the Taliban movement´s decision announced along with the ban on women from attending university.

The ban on women from working in humanitarian NGOs is a huge blow for vulnerable communities and the entire country, it adds.

The document claims that banning women from working will have immediate effects that threaten the lives of all Afghans.

The organizations ratified their commitment to continue working while they assess the scope of this restriction, but they announced that many other activities will have to be suspended.

The female staff is key in every aspect of the humanitarian response in Afghanistan due to their work as teachers, nutrition experts, team leaders, health workers, vaccinators, nurses, doctors and organization leaders.
