The poverty of the poor and the fourteen years of war have caused countless women to lose their breadwinners.
These women say that they move the wheel of life by being present in the streets of Kabul.
The Ministry of Women’s Affairs is determined to address the living conditions of these women, but reports indicate that their living conditions have not changed significantly and that the number of women beggars is increasing every day.
Zarmina, a 35-year-old woman who spreads a tent in the Kabul Frushgah under the scorching sun from morning to evening, she says was forced to beg with her 14-day-old baby and her 2-year-old daughter. She says that her husband lost both legs in a suicide attack in the New Kabul area and now walks around with plastic feet and sells plastic on the streets.
She said: her two children had to patrol the streets because our rent was 4,000 Afghanis.
She says that she is harassed daily by the police and the people and tolerates insulting words.
Officials at the Human Rights Commission are also concerned about the rise of women beggars. They say war, suicide and bombings have led to women begging.
Latifa Sultani, head of the women’s rights department at the Human Rights Commission, says the persistence of the unemployment war is one of the reasons for the increase in the number of women beggars. The statistics of their lives are forced to attack
Although many of these women are not willing to tell their fate, Nahid, 23, a resident of Kart -e- Se, Kabul, who did not lie on the ground in the scorching heat, says that three years after my wedding, my husband in Karachi wore 400 to 300 Afghanis a day. I was convinced that I had a daughter who was also leaving, but when my husband was killed in a suicide attack in the Makrorayan area, I had to beg because my father-in-law was old and could not work. I had to beg because I had no other choice.
At the same time, people are worried about the increase of women. People say that the number of women beggars has increased compared to previous years.
Navid, a 34-year-old resident of Karte-e-Naw, Kabul, says the increase in women beggars has also worried us. The government should do some basic work. Provide factories, industrial factories, so that they can be engaged in work so that they do not give up cooking.
Zakia, who is still 21 years old and has two children, says that she has been married for four years and has just lost my husband. My husband was killed in a suicide accident. I have two children.
Meanwhile, Shahla Farid, a professor at Kabul University School of Law, blames war as a major factor in this problem, but also the Women’s Rights and Government’s institution as a key factor in bringing women together. They had the right management. “A good management means they could not have a well-organized service so that they could make a difference in their lives,” he said. Has the number of women beggars increased compared to the past? And how can the causes of the problems of four decades of turning many women into begging and ways to solve them be understood? But the solution to this dilemma is for the government to defend the rights of women and capital, which Godard must collect.
Last year, the Ministry of Social Security, the Police and the Red Cross fought to collect beggars and kept them in Merston.
But at the moment, we do not have a plan to collect the beggars, says the spokesperson
Lack of institutional program to defend women’s rights
And the Red Cross and the security forces have caused.
Officials at the Human Rights Commission are concerned about the increase in women beggars. They say violence has led to countless beggar women.
