Sad Goodbyes as PARSA Makes the Decision to Evacuate
Events in Kabul have become so intense that for the first time in 10 years Yasin and I made the decision to evacuate our international staff to Dubai through the elections. It is very sad for us because we are so immersed and involved in our Afghan life, and saying goodbye to our beloved country at such a difficult time was the opposite of what we wanted to do. But Yasin pointed out that we are much too highly visible targets and there is no hiding us. So, we are out…our families can relax a bit. Our Afghan staff will take their own precautions for safety during this terribly difficult time and we are praying for a good outcome in elections. Thanks to everyone for your support for all of us!
