The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) announced that assisting displaced and local female-headed households has become a great challenge in Afghanistan.
UNHCR stressed that the problem persists and has recently helped 24,000 people in southern provinces.
The UN agency while admitting to challenges of assisting female-headed households said that it is mostly because of the latest Taliban ban on the work of Afghan women.
Recently, the Taliban has banned women from working with non-governmental organisations in Afghanistan.
Aid organisations have repeatedly stated that without female employees, they cannot help women and children in need in Afghanistan.
