One group of volunteers has launched a mission to rescue nearly 500 Afghan students, artists, and others, with support from the governments of Canada, Ecuador and Pakistan. These volunteers call themselves the Thirty Birds Foundation, and Abuzar and Simin Royesh helped lead the efforts. They both join the show from the U.S., where Simin is being processed for resettlement at a military base.
