Would love to know if there is any action that global citizens can take to help.

Hi, Erin, you’re actually not the first American I’ve heard from who found their choice of partner rejected by family, and even cut off from them for life over it. I think you can help Afghans in this situation by supporting the couple in social media at every opportunity; they have many supporters at home too. And if you want to help financially, I would recommend giving to Women for Afghan Women (womenforafghanwomen.org), which does terrific work helping women who are fleeing honor killing or thrown out of their homes over their choice of mate.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
