The activists of Pangea, the Milanese non-profit organization active in Afghanistan, have been made safe at the Kabul airport but remain blocked at the airport, waiting to be boarded. Meanwhile outside the airport the tension remains very high. “The situation is tragic – explains to Adnkronos Silvia Redigolo, activist of the Pangea Onlus Foundation – there are still the Taliban who beat and shoot, we have news of traumatized children, alone, who have lost their parents and of newborns outside the gate in line for hours. People have told us that they beat a child and that he no longer moved his legs, it is really difficult. ” Read also What to leave the country “is not a flight that is easy to take – points out Redigolo -. Getting into the airport is a problem, outside there are 10 thousand people pushing, there is a crowd. There are the Taliban who whip and they beat, several women have been beaten and have been queuing for hours to get past the crowd. People are desperate and frightened. ” The activists of Pangea and their families, in recent days, to be recognized by the Italian carabinieri who accompanied them to boarding, have drawn a P on their hand. “The Italian military is doing an exceptional job – underlines Redigolo – women needed something that could identify them to speed up entry to the airport, and the P of Pangea has become a pass for a new life”. The latest activists should be back in the next few hours. “We hope they will ship them between today and tomorrow” hopes Redigolo. In the meantime, 200 thousand euros have been donated by various Italian artists including Fiorella Mannoia, Emma, Giorgia, Elisa, Gianna Nannini, Alessandra Amoroso and Laura Pausini, together with Una No Centomila, for Afghan women and girls, supporting the Pangea Onlus Foundation. “It is an important donation – remarks Redigolo – we are still raising funds, we have a welcome and integration project for these women with their families and Pangea does not stop its work in Kabul, we will go on to work for women and children “.
