Jamila Abbasi reading for Wales PEN Cymru on Human Rights Day – Remember the Writers of Afghanistan.
This is the second of three videos (see first here and third here) made by Afghan poet and educationalist Jamilla Abbasi in Quetta, Pakistan. Ms Abbasi contributed to the Human Rights Day event hosted by Wales PEN Cymru urging people not to forget the writers of Afghanistan. As well as being a widely published writer, she runs 4 schools for Afghan refugee children. The translations on this video are taken from her book, ‘In the Shadow of Immigration’ published by the UNHCR with English translations.
The video appears on Covid Chronicles with permissions.
