The United Nations Women’s Organization announced on Saturday that 86% of humanitarian aid organizations led or focused on women in Afghanistan are no longer operating or have scaled back their work.

The organization tweeted that a week after the ban was imposed on women working for non-governmental organizations in Afghanistan, 151 humanitarian aid organizations, most of them targeting or targeting women, were asked to what extent the ban had affected their ability to provide services and it was found that the ban had serious consequences.

The organization added that the ban led to the reduction or complete suspension of the work of 86% of these public organizations.

On Thursday, the United Nations announced that it would not stop providing aid to Afghanistan despite the Taliban’s ban on women working in the country’s humanitarian organizations.

“Let me make it clear to you that the United Nations, along with its humanitarian partners, is deeply committed to providing vital services to the people of Afghanistan,” Ramiz Alekperov, UN Resident Coordinator in Afghanistan, told reporters.

Alekperov told a press conference that Afghanistan’s humanitarian needs are “very colossal.”

And prior to the decision to ban women from working in non-governmental organizations, the Taliban government decided to ban university education for women until further notice, a decision that sparked widespread international condemnation and protest movements within Afghanistan.
