As an organisation the WI is very concerned about the plight of women and girls in/from Afghanistan
Members who wish to support calls for the UK government to take action can do the following:
- Sign this petition which calls for a range of actions to protect the freedom of Afghan women and girls https://chng.it/fzwCFYZ5vw
- Write to their MP asking them to push the government for action to support women and girls. A draft letter you can send to your MP is attached to this email.
We are aware that many members will also want to take practical action to support refugees who have been resettled in the UK. We have therefore collated a list of organisations working in this field that are asking for support from the public. This list can be found at the following link:
