After days of terror in Kabul: Here is a comment from the director of of NAI Supporting Open Media in Afghanistan, JMICs main partner in the country:

It is nightmare that we are witnessing even we are awake, we are witnessing all day long and even during nights. But, we are still alive, more than a hundred were killed and almost two hundreds were injured, but it is not stopping us to move ahead. I was gathering a group of people and all last night knocking hospitals’ doors for donating blood. It is hard but I, my family and my colleagues and thousands of others are going ahead believing that we should pave the ground for future generations to live in peace. We believe we can do it and indeed we are obliged to do it.” Abdul Mujeeb Khalvatgar
