Afghanistan

Dearest Zainab,

Thank you for sharing the current environmental state of your country. I have always been fascinated by this region - with the dry land and strong people. I would love to hear more about the people who live there. What are Afghan people like, in your eyes. What are the women like in Afghanistan and what is their fate?

I pray that agriculture can thrive once again, and that the forests can be planted again. Afghanistan is not the only place where the environment is hurting, however in such an extreme climate, it could be one of the most severely affected.

We are so happy that your voice is among us. Please continue to share your thoughts with our community.

In friendship,
Jade
