In this week’s edition of our series Making a Difference, we meet an Iranian-born woman who says education is the best way to help the people of Afghanistan, especially women and children. In 2001, Fary Moini traveled to Pakistan where she volunteered in a refugee clinic, helping to deliver babies. She says the lack of supplies was shocking.
“There were no bed sheets, no hot water, no heater at all. During delivery, electricity was gone and we had to use a flashlight, and doctors were using food gloves. Without any anesthesia or anything, we delivered the baby with a flashlight,” she explains, “I’ll never forget I went back, and I sat in a chair, and I felt sick. And tears were running down my face, and they said, ‘What is wrong with you?’ And I said, ‘What is wrong with me!? What is this?’ I mean, it was so inhumane!”
