Nov 10, 2013 - 15:28

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Renowned singer Loreen Talhaoui is linked to the Swedish Committee for Afghanistaninfo-icon (SCA) as ambassador to promote the organisation in Sweden.

Loreen is best known for winning the European Song Contest in 2012, representing Sweden with her entry “Euphoria”. Now, she wants to make people in Sweden more aware of the SCA development work in Afghanistan.

In a statement from SCA, she said: “I have always been very committed to the work against injustice and for human rights. I want to use my platform as an artist to reach many people with my message. If I can engage more people to support Afghanistan, I am very happy.”

SCA Secretary General Anna-Karin Johansson welcomed cooperation from the singer and hoped: “The Swedish artist will give SCA an opportunity to reach out to young people in Sweden with knowledge about Afghanistan and SCA.”

While planning to travel regularly to Afghanistan, Loreen paid first trip to Kabul and the Yaskin Bala village in Warsaj Valley. Next year, the construction of a new primary school will start in the village where she will come back and follow the work until it is finished.

“It was a great experience to meet the people of Warsaj in Yaskin Bala, both men and womeninfo-icon. I hope to come back soon and meet my friends again,” Loreen said, calling educationinfo-icon the most important issue.
