As we are working to understand the scope of this cyber-attack, we call on those responsible to walk away. Do not cause more harm and suffering to highly vulnerable people by sharing, selling or using their data.

Inequality contributes to a death every 4 seconds. It's not by chance but by choice: our economies are the violent consequence of choices made for and by the richest. #InequalityKills We can change this. Demand a more equal future for all oxfam.org/en/research/inequa… #FightInequality

Afghanistan is in free fall. We cannot, sadly, avoid the tragedy that is already occurring - we have to minimize it now. That means immediately allowing money (liquidity is key) to get into Afg, and pay civil servants and gov hospitals and schools @JohnsHopkinsSPH @WHOEMRO
U.S. sanctions triggered by the Taliban takeover have devastated everyday Afghans, leaving over half of the country hungry and throwing hospitals and schools into freefall. "Everything is falling down," says @PBSpiegel of @Humanit_Health.
