April, 16 2013 - Afghan women are taking steps to improve their own living conditions. In the beginning of March a group of seventy women in the province of Uruzgan gathered together to organize themselves and plan their collective activities. This initiative is part of the Community System Strengthening Programme (CSS), as initiated by HealthNet TPO in 2011.
Without improving their health, we cannot help the people in the areas we work in. In order to develop a country and its inhibitants, people need to feel good and be healthy. In areas affected by war and disaster, people are facing the almost impossible task of rebuilding society while they suffer from poverty, diseases and emotional consequences of conflict. This suffering must be alleviated or eliminated in order to restore society. That is a prerequisite. And it is the core of HealthNet TPO.
