Actress Angelina Jolie, who did not use an Instagram account before, opened an account to include the stories of people fighting for basic human rights. The actor published a letter written by an Afghan woman in her first post on her account.

Jolie, the goodwill ambassador of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), used the following expressions in her post on her Instagram account, which has 4.5 million followers: “This is a letter sent to me from a young girl in Afghanistan. Currently, the people of Afghanistan are on social media. losing their ability to communicate and express themselves freely, so I came to Instagram to share the stories and voices of those fighting for basic human rights around the world.

Two weeks before 9/11 I was at the border with Afghanistan, where I encountered Afghan refugees fleeing the Taliban. That was twenty years ago. It is sickening to watch Afghans being displaced once again from the fear and uncertainty that grips their country.

This is a letter I was sent from a teenage girl in Afghanistan. Right now, the people of Afghanistan are losing their ability to communicate on social media and to express themselves freely. So 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.

Spending so much time and money, spilling blood and losing lives just to get to this point is an almost incomprehensible failure. It is also sickening to watch how Afghan refugees, who for decades have been some of the most talented people in the world, are treated like a burden. Knowing what they would do for themselves if they had the tools and respect. And meeting many women and girls who not only want to get an education, but fight for it.

“Like other dedicated people, I won’t be back. I’ll keep looking for ways to help. And I hope you’ll join me.”
