[Suraya Sadeed, an Afghan woman from a wealthy family, became an exile in America after the Russians invaded in 1979. She made a happy and successful life for herself in Virginia with her husband and child. Then in the wake of her husband's sudden death, she decided to return to Afghanistan to help those who had suffered throughout the years of the invasion, the reign of the Taliban and post 9/11 trauma. Once back in America she founded Help the Afghan Children, a charity that over 17 years has raised millions to set up schools and clinics in Afghanistan and to help the displaced people of the region. Hailed by Oprah Winfrey for her bravery.]
