The brutal and never-ending war in Afghanistan has left many children orphaned with no shelter, food, and healthcare services. The Afghan government among other things, has also failed to provide for the children who have lost either one or both of their parents. Many children collect leftovers, if any, in cities from garbage cans and waste sites.
Many others make living by selling plastic bags, polishing shoes, or carrying shopping for shoppers in their wheelbarrows. However, due to the Covid-19 crisis, Afghanistan has virtually shutdown all its markets and the children have not choice but to beg in a poor and devastated country where many people cannot even afford to pay for their dinner. This also exposes the orphans to exploitation, abuse, and harsh treatment. so, on the face of adversity, this is a situation where we can restore faith in humanity, work together, and bring smiled to their faces.
Therefore, I have set up this fundraising to raise money and provide food for these children in this difficult time. While we cannot support all orphans in Afghanistan, at least we can do our part and help provide for as many as we can. We are in this together, but with varying situations. Thank you.
