Projects in Afghanistan
Standing up for Afghan women, the weakest and most persecuted sector of a country which for decades has lived in constant strife and violence.
The situation in which the country is heading at the moment is really dramatic, this as told to is by the women of RAWA, Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan, and with whom we are in contact. According to the report of Amnesty International, 11,418 people were killed in Afghanistan in 2016. In the first months of 2017 the figure has already reached 5,423. These are disturbing figures and which go to show how difficult it is to coordinate an activity of support and assistance here. Between ISIS, the Talebans and overseas forces all is unpredicable and can change day by day. For this reason too the RAWA have had to abandon the area initially assigned to them and find another nearer to the city of Herat, and consequently more secure. The new camp is already under way, the irrigation systen is working well. There are two projects under way, both in favour of Afghan women. We have also had difficulty in sending money to Afghanistan, it proving possible only thanks to our precious collaboration with 'Insieme si può'.
