Lighting a flame for an Afghani Child

By Ahmed Amr.


Dear NileMedia Reader: Last February, we published the following article to call attention to the dismal conditions of Afghan refugees who had fled Taliban rule to the areas controlled by the Northern Alliance. The article was submited to the mainstream press and publication was denied. Now, we have the world's attention focused on Afghanistan and we thought you might want to look it over again. Hardly a single major newspaper published anything of significance about the tragic situation of helpless women and children starving and freezing to death. Why? Because they were Afghans.
