Kite Runner is a bestseller book and film written by Khaled Hosseini. It tells a poignant story of the friendship between Amir, a Pushtoon boy, and Hassan, a Hazara boy through the tumultuous periods of the Soviet occupation and the Taliban in Afghanistan.



Dear Our Journey to Smile:

Thank you for sharing your Letter of Humanity’s Love from Afghan youth to the UN Hague Conference.  It was very moving and I am grateful you have included me in your distribution of it. I wish your organization the best of luck with its goals.

Khaled Hosseini


Dear Khaled,

آز شما هم تشکر ( Thanks to you too! )

Thanks so much for your personal reply; it encouraged us deeply, particularly Abdulai and Raziq who have watched The Kite Runner 5 times!

Do stay in touch and join us on the 21st of September 2009 at the Bamiyan Buddhas if your schedule allows you.

Every human heart wonders about the 1000-times-over sort of friendship. Thanks for increasing our hope and our imagination!

سلامت باشید! ( Be at peace! )
