Info

Hoor*, 16, arrived in Istanbul in late June, after being smuggled from Kunduz, Afghanistan, where her uncle had plans to marry her to a much older man. She is now living at a state-run orphanage, studying Turkish and in the process of getting her Turkish residency. In her notebook she writes Turkish words she is learning and their translation in her native Dari. Hoor left three younger sisters behind who she says inspire her to learn Turkish and work so she can find a way to bring them here.
