Fatana said that the Afghanistan Women Association worked with thousands of Afghan women and girls in education and health sectors in 2021/20 22)and provided assistance to two thousand needy widows and orphans.
During this period, she said, they even helped dozens of security personnel of the Islamic Emirate.
Gailani said: “In the initial days after the political change in the country when Taliban captured Kabul, I served meals to 70 or 80 Taliban fighters three times a day who were residing in our street, I bought winter clothing and blankets for them.”
“I did not leave the country after the Taliban takeover and stayed in the country, I was busy in welfare woks in those hard times,” she said.
“When the Taliban seized power on August 15, their spokesman said they will not prevent women from education and work, it made me optimistic,” Fatana said.
She felt good after the political change in the country and planned to extend her welfare activities for more women and girls in the country.
But the Islamic Emirate was yet to fulfill its promise as girls above the sixth grade still could not attend their lessons while majority of women not allowed to work, she lamented.
Fatana doesn’t know the reason of schools closure and said: “I do not know the reason why the doors of schools are shut for girls, I know nothing”.(20220913)
