Afghan Women Helping Afghan Women
Description: On International Women’s Day 2017, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is highlighting the challenges that women in Afghanistan face during pregnancy and childbirth. Aqila is 29 year-old Afghan midwife supervisor at MSF's hospital in Dasht-e-Barchi in Kabul, Afghanistan. "I’ve seen a lot of women in my life dying during delivery or after delivery because of PPH (post-partum haemorrhage) or a complication of delivery. And I’ve seen children growing without their mother. It’s really a very sad thing for me. And I decided in the future to become a midwife and now since 10 years I’m working as a midwife and I’m really happy about this."

A Sisterhood of Women in an Afghanistan Hospital #IWD2017
Description: On International Women’s Day 2017, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is highlighting the challenges that women in Afghanistan face during pregnancy and childbirth. #HerVoiceIsMyVoice Severine Caluwaerts is an MSF OBGYN in Khost, Afghanistan, at MSF's largest maternity project. This is her seventh time in Khost. "I’m doing exactly the job that made me study medicine so many years ago, to help people who most need help," said Caluwaerts. "Afghanistan is a war-torn country. Our patients are continuously confronted with the war. Families lose husbands, children die, mothers die. And what MSF is offering them is a safe place to deliver." " I see Afghan women, Afghan doctors, Afghan midwives. I see them from doing their first delivery to becoming really experienced and two of our national doctors still here, Dr Sadia and Dr Farida, I taught them basically their first Caesarean section and now so many years later they are independent. It’s like a sisterhood of women. It’s Afghan women taking care of Afghani women and Afghani babies." Watch "Afghan Women Helping Afghan Women": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwMBPOVDxVo

2. Who's out there? | Humanitarian Outcomes presentation
Description: This is part 2 of the webinar Who's out there? Getting an accurate picture of humanitarian presence. In a humanitarian crisis, one of the most important things to know is who is doing what, and where. That said, it has always been difficult to get an accurate and well-informed understanding of the presence of humanitarian actors on the ground, due to the autonomous and de-centralised nature of humanitarian responses. This is particularly the case in highly insecure settings, where international organisations must operate under constrained access and where local efforts to meet humanitarian need can often go unnoticed. How can we make sure we know who’s out there? In the fourth webinar of Bridging the Evidence Gap webinar series, we speak to Humanitarian Outcomes and OCHA Afghanistan about mapping presence in hard to reach areas.

Pakistan Drives Out Afghan Refugees: "Now You're Calling Us Terrorists?"
Description: (Kabul, February 13, 2017) – Pakistani authorities have carried out a campaign of abuses and threats to drive out nearly 600,000 Afghans since July 2016. The returnees include 365,000 registered refugees, making it the world’s largest mass forced return of refugees in recent years. They now face spiraling armed conflict, violence, destitution, and displacement in Afghanistan. Pakistan’s has been abusive towards refugees, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is promoting the exodus. Through enhancing its “voluntary repatriation” program and failing to publicly call for an end to coercive practices, the UN agency has become complicit in Pakistan’s mass refugee abuse. The UN and international donors should press Pakistan to end the abuses, protect the remaining 1.1 million Afghan refugees in Pakistan, and allow refugees among the other estimated 750,000 unregistered Afghans there to seek protection.

Supporting Agricultural Productivity in Afghanistan
Description: Farmers in a village in Herat Province see a boost in their harvests thanks to a rehabilitated irrigation system and by adopting best practices in water usage. These are some of the positive outcomes of the On-Farm Water Management Project, which undertook the rehabilitation of the village irrigation canal. The project, implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock, works to improve agricultural productivity by enhancing the efficiency of water use. It is supported by a grant from the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund. *** TRANSCRIPT: Haji Abdul Karim, 57, is a farmer in Khushk-e-Baad-e-Saba village in Enjil district in Herat Province. The village’s farms are fed by a canal built by the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock through the On-Farm Water Management Project (OFWMP). With support from the Afghanistan Reconstruction Trust Fund (ARTF), OFWMP works to improve agricultural productivity in project areas by enhancing the efficiency of water use. OFWMP has established 59 irrigation associations across western Afghanistan, which have greatly reduced water-related conflict in villages and ensured the proper maintenance of newly built irrigation canals. The Khushk-e-Baad-e-Saba canal stretches 3,315 meters and benefits more than 300 families. While previously only 75 percent of Haji Abdul Karim's farmland was cultivable, he now farms all of his land. The canal has increased the village’s arable lands by more than 15 percent, making farming a more viable economic source of livelihood, and transforming the village into a more prosperous, happier, and greener place.

Afghans Work Together To Build A Better Future
Description: Even after decades of international aid, Afghanistan remains one of the poorest countries in the world and one of the most dangerous. Despite the challenges, its people have overcome conflict and poverty to build a democratic state and work toward peace and prosperity. The International Rescue Committee is partnering with the Afghan government and towns and villages across the nation on the world’s biggest development effort, the National Solidarity Program. Some 4,000 local development councils, made up of men and women who have been democratically elected by their neighbors, are helping the country to rebuild and recover. They are launching projects, such as road works, water systems, renewable energy sources, vocational training programs and new schools, that will benefit their fellow Afghans for decades to come. The International Rescue Committee helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and gain control of their future.
