From Afghanistan to Aotearoa

From Afghanistan to Aotearoa

by Abbas Nazari; illustrations by Laya Mutton-Rogers 

Imagine having to make an impossible choice: stay with the life you know in the country of your birth but face misery after misery – or risk everything. Flee your homeland, where your family has lived for generations, for the chance of a new beginning. The following is a true story. It begins when I was seven. Although these things happened to my family, the story is not only ours. It belongs to Afghan refugees everywhere, but especially to the people rescued by the Tampa.
