Anahita – a mother’s journey

Coming Soon

A story of courage, resilience and hope

Anahita was a police officer in Kabul. This is her first-person account of escaping from Afghanistan in August 2021 with her five children, after being tipped off that the Taliban was looking for her. Anahita tells the harrowing story of getting into the airport, climbing over barbed wire, almost being shot by the Taliban, and the challenge of keeping her children safely by her side throughout the ordeal. She arrived at Fort Dix in New Jersey, where immigration officials began her resettlement process. Shortly after arriving, Anahita discovered something that would change her life and impact her family forever.
