Letter from a refugee

Unfortunate circumstances in Afghanistan in the summer of 2021 forced several people to leave their beloved country. Sachi Dely, a visual artist based out of Greensboro, NC, experienced something similar two decades ago in Vietnam. Through this visual poem, Sachi renders advice to new refugees to rekindle hope and faith.
