Afghanistan: Helping people affected by conflict

02 October 2015

As fighting continues in the northern city of Kunduz in Afghanistan, we are deeply concerned about the welfare of local civilians and their ability to access health care.

Update, Saturday 3 October 2015: We condemn the shocking bombing of Médecins Sans Frontières' hospital in ‪‎Kunduz. Under international humanitarian law, medical facilities must be respected and protected.

We call on all parties to the conflict to ensure the safety of the civilian population and to facilitate the work of those trying to provide humanitarian support to the people of Kunduz.
