Save the Children says Afghan women could die because of the Taliban’s gender laws.

Very افغان۔ Women and girls can die because TalibanA charity has warned that stricter gender segregation laws prevent medical aid from reaching them.

Nonprofits must obtain permission from Taliban provincial leaders before their female humanitarian staff can work in the area. Protect children Campaign Director Athena Rayburn said.

He added that about 5.5 million people are homeless in Afghanistan, most of them women and children.

Ms Ray Byrne told PA: “Even with our mobile health teams, we are being told that we should not allow female patients to see male doctors.

“If we can’t ensure the safety of our female staff, they will not be hired and it will lead to casualties.

“It’s devastating, and something that can be stopped completely.”

This comes after the Taliban did not appoint a woman as a minister in the Afghan government.

The militant group also said women and girls would not be allowed to go to school unless their class teacher was a woman.

Ms Ray Byrne added that Save the Children has seen a huge increase in the number of malnourished children in need of urgent care, and that the health system in Afghanistan has been “severely damaged”.

Since the Taliban took control of the country in August, less than a fifth of the 2,300 World Bank-funded health facilities in Afghanistan have been operating at less than 17%, which has forced thousands to relocate. Tried hard

Ms Ray Byrne said: “It’s really a storm of human catastrophe. And it’s definitely getting worse and worse in the country with the constant cash crunch.

He said G20 leaders called on the Taliban to allow humanitarian access throughout Afghanistan and keep the country’s borders open, “a step in the right direction” Should be preferred.

He said: “Generally, in the humanitarian budget, education is not funded because it is not seen as life-saving.

“From our experience, education is clearly life-saving, and especially for vulnerable groups such as girls.

“In many cases, it can literally be a safe place for their parents to know that their children will stay for several hours a day, which will allow them to go out and work.”

He added that the UK should make “exemptions” in its anti-terrorism legislation, which currently prevents welfare workers from providing material support to certain Taliban leaders.

Since the last US troops withdrew from Afghanistan in August, Save the Children has been able to provide health and education to more than 40,000 people in seven of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces.

The charity resumed operations in Kandahar, Kabul, Jawzjan, Balkh, Laghman, Nangarhar and Kunar in September, after working first in those provinces and three more.

A British government spokesman said: “We are considering the best way to ensure that life-saving humanitarian aid continues to reach the Afghans who need it.

“We have been clear with the Taliban and our partners that we expect women and girls of all ages to have access to quality education, and that their rights need to be protected.”
