RIP Nancy Hatch Dupree – ‘Grandmother of Afghanistan’

Nancy Hatch Dupree, affectionately known as the ‘Grandmother of Afghanistan’, passed away on Sunday 10th September at the age of 89.

Sharing a kebab and a cup of green tea with Nancy was always a highlight of a visit to Afghanistan. Always illuminating us with talks of her travels around the country. A personal hero of our founders James and Kausar, she was always very supportive of what we were doing in Afghanistan. That has always meant a lot to us.

Rest in Peace Nancy.
