Last month, as Americans and Afghans scrambled to find a way to escape Afghanistan, a seemingly innocuous email appeared in CNA’s inbox. Being a news agency, we get a lot of mail, and this email might have slipped through the cracks, if it hadn’t caught the attention of Kelsey Wicks, Catholic News Agency’s operations manager. The message turned out to be a desperate plea for help.
“Please help me,” the email read.
“I have no one without you. You are my last hope.”
This week on CNA Newsroom, we share the story of an Afghan Christian, whose tragic situation is, like the situation of his home country, still unfolding. His story provides a glimpse into the experience of the people of Afghanistan these past several weeks, as their country fell back into the hands of the Taliban.
