“I’ve come on Instagram to share their stories and the voices of those across the globe who are fighting for their basic human rights,” Angelina Jolie wrote in her first Instagram story while sharing an anonymous letter of an Afghan girl.
Angelina Jolie, who seemed deeply disturbed by what’s happening in Afghanistan, said it is sickening to watch Afghans being displaced again out of fear and uncertainty.
Jolie said that as the people of Afghanistan are unable to express themselves or communicate on social media, she has taken the responsibility for herself to share the stories of their fight for basic human rights.
She further added that she feels sad about how Afghan people are being treated like a burden, knowing that if they had resources they would have done so much for themselves. She promised not to turn away from them as others did and also urged people to join.
She posted the entire letter while blurring the name of the victim and her location. In the letter, the girl has expressed her difficulties in gaining education after the Taliban ceased control.
In her second Instagram post, she said that she is now working with displaced people, out of her respect for their families and their hard work to overcome inequality, injustice, and persecution. The 46-year-old Oscar-winning actress has been working with international organizations to help the needy over the past many years.
