This season, increased insecurity coupled with high unemployment rates and lack of government aid have made life very tough for the bottom 20% (including internally displaced people). We are aiming to raise $5,000 from our families and friends and use the money to purchase winter clothes for underprivileged and poor families in Afghanistan (mainly Kabul). Clothing and blankets will be purchased in Kabul and distributed by youth volunteers throughout the city. The holiday season is just around the corner, please donate today and help save a life and make a difference.
