Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai wants countries to open their borders to Afghan refugees. She is worried about the safety of Afghans after the Taliban took over on August the 15th. Malala is a human rights activist from Pakistan. She was shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012 because she supported education for girls. She was 15 years old at that time and was on her way to school. She is now worried that girls in Afghanistan will not get an education. She is also concerned that women in Afghanistan will not have the freedom they have had for twenty years.

Ms Yousafzai became the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner at the age of 17. She continues to campaign for the education of women and children. She called recent events in Afghanistan "shocking" and said there is an "urgent humanitarian crisis". She said: "We are living in a world where we're talking about advances…about gender equality. We cannot see a country going decades and centuries back." She called on the world to act to protect women, girls and minority groups. She also called for peace and stability in the region.
