In April 2022 Midstone Centre launched the project Stories From Afghanistan, where we seek to amplify voices from Afghanistan that have been directly or indirectly affected by the violence perpetrated by the Taliban and other violent groups. Many people affected by this violence are unable to come forward with their stories due to security threats to themselves or their loved ones still living in Afghanistan. Therefore, Midstone Centre will amplify these voices while protecting their identity and other personal information. Submissions can be mailed at info@midstonecentre.com
