Opinion | The U.S. might cut funding for organizations like mine in Afghanistan. That would be another disaster. – The Washington Post

For organizations that have demonstrated a meaningful impact on health, women’s rights, education and other sectors, this is a death sentence. For a country that depends upon aid to function, this could be a catastrophe.
