Human rights activist Malala Yousafzai wants countries to open their borders to Afghan refugees. She is worried about their safety after the Taliban took over Afghanistan. Malala is from Pakistan. The Taliban shot her in the head in 2012 because she supported girls' education. She was 15 years old and was on her way to school. She is worried that girls in Afghanistan will not get an education and that women will not have the freedom they had for twenty years.

Ms Yousafzai is the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. She continues to campaign for girls' education. She called recent events in Afghanistan "shocking". She said there is an "urgent humanitarian crisis". She said many countries were talking about equality, so it is difficult to see Afghanistan "going decades and centuries back". She called for the protection of women, girls and minority groups. She also called for peace in the region.
