As we speak to you, right now, the devastating crisis in Afghanistan has forced nearly 400,000 Afghans—including thousands of our clients, staff, and their families—to flee their homes, towns, and provinces seeking safer refuge.
Women for Afghan Women (WAW) is heartbroken at the speed and extent to which the violence and escalating conflict in Afghanistan has threatened the innocent lives of millions and displaced hundreds of thousands. But we are determined to employ every resource we have to meet the needs of the emergency currently engulfing Afghanistan and its people.
We urgently appeal to all parties to respect the sanctity of life and all human rights. And, we call upon all our international partners to continue their support to the people of Afghanistan at this critical time.
WAW is a majority Afghan and Muslim organization. But, today, we are ALL Afghans.
Over the past few weeks, we have been working relentlessly, 24/7, to keep our clients, staff, and families alive and safe. We are evacuating centers, pausing operations, and continually assessing risks. We are working day and night to provide safe shelter, resources, and aid to keep the thousands of women, children, families, and the staff who are under our care.
We—clients, staff, and the people of Afghanistan—ask not only for your prayers in these desperate times but for your immediate support to get us through this crisis.
