Since then, Sakina’s life has been turned upside down as she faces threats and harassment due to her attempts to seek safety abroad. Her family has also suffered; they have been targeted by armed groups and forced into hiding.

However, despite their ordeal, Sakina remains hopeful that she will be given another chance to make a better life for herself and her family. “I want justice,” she says. “I want my and my family’s rights to be respected.”

Sakina’s story highlights the desperate plight of refugees worldwide who have been denied their right to seek safety and a better life. We must all do more to protect vulnerable people like Sakina and ensure they are not left alone in times of crisis. Our moral responsibility is to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves.

We urge the UK government to reconsider its decision and grant Sakina her visa so she can pursue an education without fear of persecution or harm. Let us show compassion and give her the opportunity she deserves. Let us remember those in need.

We must ensure that every person who seeks safety and a better life has their rights upheld and are allowed to reach their full potential without fear of persecution or harm. In solidarity with refugees everywhere, we must take action now to protect vulnerable people like Sakina and give them hope for the future. It’s time for us to speak up and defend their right to find safety, peace and security. We must show compassion towards those governments around the world have abandoned – it is our moral obligation. Together, we can create a more just and equitable society where everyone can live with dignity. Let us come together in support of Sakina and fight for her rights. Let us stand together in solidarity with refugees and vulnerable people worldwide. It is time for us to take action now.
