Glimps of Afghan’s daily life.
Border of life. Afghanistan is now flourished by international hard currencies and the sudden money has created a class of rich people in cities like Kabul. But the poor remain to live in their world. And the distance between the two classes is getting greater and contrasted.

Today marks the one year anniversary of the Panjwayi massacre in Afghanistan in which a US soldier, Robert Bales, left his military base and murdered 16 innocent civilians (9 children, 3 women) in two separate villages, cut off their limbs and set them on fire.
This would be U.S. imperialism for you.

Funds for Afghan children School & winter supplies.
Please donate for Afghan children in need. Afghanistan’s population of 31 million consist of more than 50% of children under the age of 15. For almost 30 years Afghan children have been affected by conflict. Only half of children are in school today, many work in the streets or in fields and homes to support their families. Children in Afghanistan face one of the worst chances of survival of anywhere in the world. Most of the families are displaced to more safer places because of the war in their regions, so they live in tents which can not keep them warm in winters resulting in family members dieing in, specially the young children and the elderly. One in four children dies before their fifth birthday, most of them from preventable diseases and malnutrition.
Me and my team travel to Afghanistan every year for 3 to 4 months. I will personally make sure your donations reach the children of Afghanistan in form of Winter clothing from blankets to coats and shoes to keep them warm. As simple this might seam to you, The lack of these simple things such as blankets and coats or shoes are often the cause of death for more than 20 afghan children annually. The donations will also be used to provide them with school supplies to help give chances of better education to afghan children.
Most of the schools are free, Afghan children thus have a chance to go to school but a lot of Afghan children come from poor families, barely able to put food on the table 2 times a day. Buying school supplies is therefore not considered necessity as they cant even provide proper food for their children. The lack of Books, pens, bags and notebooks causes discouragement even if the education was free. Providing these to the Afghan children will help children study better with more enthusiasm and therefore be more successful. These young children are the future of this country. You can help build it even if you are far away. There is an afghan proverb that says, drop and drops forms a river.
The goal is to collect 5000$ to cover more than one city from Ghazni to Qarabagh so on. Basic School and Winter necessities will be bought and distributed to Children only.
School supplies include >
- Back packs and pencil box to keep their books and notebooks and stationery in.
- Necessary pen, pencils and colors, rubbers, sharpeners etc.
Winter supplies include >
- Sweaters jackets
- Shoes for girls and boys
- Socks and hand warmers
Even if you help just one child that is a great accomplishment.
