Nancy Hatch Dupree on a Life of Service Amidst War

We followed Afghan Scholar and Founder of the Afghanistan Centre at Kabul University, Nancy Hatch Dupree, when she was 82-years-old, for one week in 2009.   Born October 3, 1927 Dupree died September 10, 2017.

We had a couple of questions for the Cooperstown, New York native.

First, why has she devoted over 50 years of her life to helping the Afghan people? Second, as she shuttles between Kabul, Afghanistan and Peshawar, Pakistan, does she fear for her life?

Click on the video below to hear what she says.
