Urgent Message from our Chair of the Board on Afghanistan
Our statement on the updates coming out of Afghanistan and our position as an organisation.
18 Aug 2021
The speed of events in Afghanistan has taken everyone by surprise. We, together with the rest of the world, are very uncertain about the future and what will happen next.
Our immediate priority is the safety of our local Afghan team and their families. We are taking every step to protect and support them. In 12 years of working with local partners in Afghanistan HP has helped reduce maternal and infant mortality and improve education for girls. These goals remain key for Afghanistan’s future. We are committed to finding ways to continue this work. We remain in solidarity with the Afghan people.
