I am in Kabul #Afghanistan.
In the next days, I’ll be hearing from women about their struggles to makes ends meet but also their aspirations.
Women are the bedrock of this country. They are vital for the stability of families, communities and Afghanistan’s future prosperity. https://t.co/EIpw2SE9Oo
About to land in Kabul #Afghanistan.
Stunning scenery from the sky.
Looking forward to meet our dedicated UNHCR colleagues and learning more about the country and the humanitarian needs of the people. https://t.co/EPnN4aXxId
This flood was unimaginable a few months ago but it is not happening in isolation. All around the world we are seeing climate events ravage the lives of the most vulnerable.
We cannot let this become the norm. https://t.co/ThNpWhtRYI
As Pakistan struggles to recover from one of the worst climate disasters in history, they need support from the international community.
The situation will only get worse if the international appeal remains underfunded.
More lives will be lost.
For refugees like Nastarullah, who I met yesterday, the floods have uprooted their families a second time. Like so many people I’ve met here, they've been forced to flee conflict and unrest in Afghanistan and have now been forced to rebuild their lives again.
It’s devastating. https://t.co/IOT4QcdioX
Even seeing it first-hand, it was hard for me to comprehend the scale of the climate disaster in Pakistan.
Swathes of the country are still underwater after the recent floods. Homes have been washed away, lives destroyed, already fragile futures left hanging in the balance. https://t.co/RBTc0UfBnG
