Duchess of York meets Afghan refugees in Albania

KABUL (Pajhwok): Prince Andrew’s former spouse Sarah Ferguson has met Afghan refugees, including girls, female cyclists, a poet and a judge in Albania.

The Duchess of York, on her Instagram page, shared photos with the Afghan refugees, including a top female judge, and other women leaders in their respective fields.

She also met the all-girls cycling team, doctors, long-serving military mothers, fathers, and children — some of who have been separated from their parents.

In one picture, she held a placard inscribed with the slogan “To the world, Afghan girls matter! They have the right to study!”.

In the caption, Sarah says: “The refugee camp was located at the Kolivari resort in Golem and I was welcomed by an Afghan poet, Mohammad Zaria, with a poem about peace.”

Donning a headscarf, Sara said she felt ‘privileged’ to meet a top female judge and a women’s cycling team who have fled Afghanistan
