Letter to Ban-Ki Moon, Sec. Gen. UN

“When I began this campaign to free Dr. Aafia, I had no intention to do anything beyond bringing my sister and her children home. Now – having learned that our family is one of thousands who have suffered similarly, I have come to understand that we are far from alone.”
