Swedish Committee for Afghanistan
Since the beginning of the year, the escalating fighting in Afghanistan has driven hundreds of thousands of people from their homes – and more are fleeing every day. This August we learned that the Taliban have taken power in the country and there is great uncertainty about the future. Our support organisation for September is the Swedish Committee for Afghanistan (SAC). They mainly work with the most vulnerable members of society: women, children, people with disabilities and internally displaced persons. Despite the situation in Afghanistan, SAC is continuing to focus its efforts on local development of rural areas, schools and health care with unchanged strength. But they need help and we feel that SAC is the obvious choice for this month’s support organisation so that they can continue their important work.
