CRISIS IN AFGHANISTAN: Help WAW Build an Emergency Fund!
On Monday, September 27th, the Taliban in Afghanistan overran government security forces and took control of the northern Afghan province of Kunduz. Since then, the Taliban have committed numerous war crimes, pillaging and destroying the provincial capital and murdering, raping, and terrorizing its residents.
Notwithstanding reports that Afghan government forces have taken back much of the city, the situation remains extremely perilous. Several northern and eastern provinces are now struggling to fight off the extremist group.
As the Taliban expand their reign of terror, WAW has been forced to evacuate staff and clients in a second province, and has suspended operations in three more as we work with local and international partners to protect innocent lives.
Please help us build an emergency fund today to help manage this unfolding crisis!
Your support will provide critical funding for costs associated with emergency care and contingency planning to ensure our staff and clients' safety and that we are strong in the weeks and months of uncertainty ahead.
Despite the adversity we face, WAW remains steadfastly dedicated to our work. Protecting women and children is the heart and soul of WAW, and the current tumult only underscores the significance of what we do. We will get through this crisis, but we need your help.
