In two top secret operations, 167 Afghans — including human rights activists, judges, journalists, singers and members of the national women’s cycling and girl’s robotic teams, were rescued in the wake of the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan. The missions were initiated by journalist Danna Harman and coordinated by IsraAID, in cooperation with the United Arab Emirates, Albania, Canada and other countries.
MediaCentral is inviting you to a Zoom meeting with Harman and two Afghan sisters that were separately rescued and who will share their stories and answer questions.
