Malala Yousafzai wants countries to open their borders to Afghan refugees. She is worried about their safety. Malala is from Pakistan. The Taliban shot her in the head in 2012 for supporting girls' education. She is worried that girls in Afghanistan will not be able to go to school and that women will not have freedom.

Ms Yousafzai is the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner. She called events in Afghanistan "shocking". She said there is an "urgent humanitarian crisis". She does not want to see Afghanistan "going decades and centuries back". She called for the protection of women and minority groups. She also called for peace.
