Dozens of employees of the organization “Women for Afghan Women” held a protest on Saturday in the capital city of Kabul, where they accused the organization of being irresponsible towards its employees.
The protestors complained about their salaries, saying they have not been paid for three months.
The main department of the organization is in New York, according to the protestors.
“We were supporting the women who were facing family violence or were displaced and had nowhere to live. They have closed many of these centers and the women were obliged to leave,” said Malali, a protestor.
According to the protestors, the organization of “Women for Afghan Women” was active in 13 of 34 provinces but has halted operations in the country but the Islamic Emirate has not interfered in the organization’s activities.
“Unfortunately, some individuals prevented the (availability) of an amount of $15 million which was being directed in the winter to Afghanistan,” said Sayed Mohibullah Haqiq, head of the organization.
The protestors released a resolution at the end of the protest.
“We call for the immediate (availability) of $11 million which is collected in the US for the purpose of countering the Afghan crisis,” a protestor said.
The organization of Women for Afghan Women started operations in 2017.
The organization was providing legal aid, accommodation and financial services to the women and children in Afghanistan.
