Angelina Jolie publishes the touching letter she received from an Afghan girl: I will look for ways to help those people! – Latest news
The world-famous actress, also the great humanist, Angelina Jolie, recently shared a follow-up post with her fans on Instagram.
She has published a letter she received from a teenage girl in Afghanistan, stating in her caption that she will do her best to fight for human rights there.
Jolie wrote in the caption of the photo, that this is why she has appeared on social networks – although she has never done so before.
Here is her full article:
“This is a letter sent to me by a teenage girl in Afghanistan. Right now, the people of Afghanistan are losing their ability to communicate on social media and express themselves freely. So I came to Instagram to share their stories and the voices of those across the globe who are fighting for their basic human rights.
I was on the Afghan border two weeks before 9/11, where I met Afghan refugees who had fled the Taliban. That was twenty years ago.
It was painful to watch the Afghans relocate again from the fear and insecurity that has gripped their country.
Spending so much time and money, shedding blood and lost lives just to achieve this, is an almost impossible failure to understand.
Watching for decades how Afghan refugees – some of the most capable people in the world – are treated as a burden is also ill. Knowing that if they had the tools and respect, how much they would do for themselves. And meeting so many women and girls who not only wanted an education, but fought for it.
Like the others engaged, I will not leave. I will continue to look for ways to help. “And I hope you will join me,” Jolie wrote. / balkanweb
