Following the murder of women's rights activist, Farida Afridi, in Peshwar on 4th July, a concerted effort by supporters of the organisation she founded, Sawera, to honour her work is showing results.

Her tragic death, gunned down while walking to her office, has shocked many people throughout the world and has highlighted the issue of women working in sensitive and insecure parts of the world.

The Safeworld International Foundation has also setup a Farida Fund where you can make donations to SAWERA.
