The situation is changing fast on the ground in Kabul and across Afghanistan. With the complex web of political statesmanship and diplomatic rationalization for the chaos, the voices of those in the cities and towns, in their homes and on the tarmac of Kabul airport, risk being drowned out.
As has become our unfortunate practice during these periods of national and global crises, the MENA Film Festival team has attempted to do its small part to direct the course of the narrative back to those most affected and often last considered in the eyes of the international community: every-day Afghans. We have therefore assembled below a short and necessarily limited list of resources, background readings, petitions and fundraising pages which might help guide some of you as we all try to make sense of the tragedy. We will continue to revist and add to the documents as the situation unfolds.
Please connect with us in case we've overlooked anything and we will be happy to add it to the list: email@example.com
