Stay strong

Dear Manizha,

I am sad to hear about your challenges. I know that children in Afghanistan usually go to their father when a couple gets divorced. Is it possible that you can be helped by the Women's Rights Commission in Balkh or the Independent Human Rights Commission? I know there is a women's shelter in Mazar-e-Sharif. It is run by Women for Afghan Women. http://www.womenforafghanwomen.org/index.php/our-programs/womens-shelters You may not need a shelter, but they may have people who can counsel you about your rights and options.

There may also be people at the Afghan Women's Network who can help you. http://www.afghanwomennetwork.af/

Manizha, you will be in my prayers. I hope you will find your happiness and that Ferdaws and Frhan can stay in your life forever. Stay strong. Baland tareen koh sar-e khod rah darad. Khuda hafiz!
