Al Jazeera reports on murder of Pakistan women's rights activist Farida Afridi

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.

Most recently Doha based Al Jazeera sent a reporter, Kamal Hyder, to the region.

 

 

Farida's work continues

Despite all the ongoing challenges mentioned in the video, the SAWERA Team are determined to courageously move forwards with their work and Farida's mission to promote equality and peace in the region.

Most recently they have set up a Facebook page where you can find out more about their work.

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