Afghan Country Coordinator and family at risk have arrived in the Netherlands after surviving Taliban´s bullet

We are pleased to announce that today our Country Coordinator, Nazir Tofan, has arrived in the Netherlands together with his wife and daughter. Mr. Tofan and his family were at great risk in Afghanistan, which became even more apparent when last Friday Mr. Tofan´s wife, Sahar Obaidee, was shot in her arm by the Taliban after leaving their house to get bread.

Gender Concerns International is grateful to the Dutch Ministry, the Crisis Management Team and all staff on the ground for their brilliant support and for providing Women’s Human Rights defenders with safe passage from Afghanistan.
