Picnic 4 Peace will observe International Day of Peace with an online service and candle lighting for Peace in Afghanistan from 6.30pm – 7.30pm.
Sept 16 (Reuters) – Afghanistan needs urgent and sustained support from the international community to prevent a larger humanitarian crisis, the head of the U.N. refugee agency said, warning of global implications if that were to happen.
“The humanitarian situation in Afghanistan remains desperate,” U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi said in a statement after a three-day visit to the South Asian nation.
“If public services and the economy collapse, we will see even greater suffering, instability, and displacement both within and outside the country,” he added in Wednesday’s statement.
“The international community must therefore engage with Afghanistan – and quickly – in order to prevent a much bigger humanitarian crisis that will have not only regional, but global implications.”
On International Day of Peace, you are invited to participate in a Peace service for Afghanistan.
Including guest speakers of the Afghan community and candle lighting at home.
Please join us online Tuesday 21 September from 6.30pm – 7.30pm.
