I am writing to you with urgency, sadness and deep concern about the situation of women and girls in Afghanistan. Please join me in an Emergency Response for Afghan Women. Donor Direct Action, which I co-convene with South African Judge Navi Pillay, supports a front line women’s group in Afghanistan that has protected Afghan women and children since 1999. Jessica Neuwirth and I recently spoke with the leadership of this group and it was heartbreaking to hear first-hand from Kabul about the scale of this crisis and the utter lack of resources to respond. These women are fearless and inspiring, and they need our help. That is why I am convening this Emergency Response for Afghan Women. 100% of your donation made to www.donordirectaction.org/HAWCA will be regranted to our Afghan partner to support their work.
The situation on the ground is deteriorating very quickly with every passing day. I hope we can count on you!
