Help 70 yr old Afghan Janat Bibi raise 17 children

Afghan grandmother, 70 year old Janat Bibi has been left as the sole breadwinner raising 17 children all by herself in the village of Shemal in Nangarhar province in eastern Afghanistan.

The children belong to her son and grandson who were both killed in the ongoing war in war.

Myself, the Documenting Afghanistan team and supporters are hoping to raise a minimum of $1000, but hopefully more to make sure Janat Bibi is able to provide for herself and these children who have been left in extremely challenging circumstances.

Please consider donating any amount large or small and share this fundraiser campaign with people who may be able to support.

I will hand deliver the funds to Janat Bibi by the end of April 2019 (next month)

All funds will go towards food, clothing, heating, cooking and housing expenses 

Thank you,
Documenting Afghanistan
