Today, I was able to send $100 through western Union. This is a trial, to make sure everything goes well. Waiting to hear from Nasim. See More

THE STORY:

My name is Sam Musa and I'm a graduate student at Georgia Tech. I was born in Afghanistan and as a refugee child in Pakistan I was able to attend school with charitable donations of the good people of Japan. Today I am trying to gather support for a special family in need from Afghanistan. On April 11th, 12 members of this family were killed by an IED in Qarabagh Afghanistan. Among the killed were two prominent teachers: Modir Arif and Malim Salman. These teachers had devoted their entire lives to educate the children of their own community and those of the surrounding villages. In the part of Afghanistan, that they live, Taliban has a strong presence and had forced the locals to close down the girls school. However, these teachers, against continuous Taliban threats, kept educating the girls in their house and in the mosque. They lost their lives fighting for what they believed to be the solution to violence and hatred. Thousands of lives have been touched by these teachers in the course of their 20-30 years of service. Now, this family is survived by 8 of their children, the youngest of whom is 3 years and the oldest is 20. These children are left without any support system or caregivers and they live in a part of the country which is practically a war zone. So far I have been unable to gather all their names and other specific details due to lack of communication services in Qarabagh. I have reached out to friends and family everywhere and I am hopeful to fill those details as soon as I get them. Right now, the most urgent need of this family is money and support. Lets help these children and give them a chance their parents wanted for every child. Please donate to this humanitarian charity and also share this with your friends and family.

Thank you!
