Warm Up Qambar IDP Camp

Afghanistan has been riddled with confilct for the last 40 years.
Afghans mainly women, children and the elderly, from all over the country come to Kabul to find a safe zone.
Kabul is home to Charahi Qambar refugee camp to escape the Extreme governments and daily fighting in the provinces.
More tha 7000 Afghans are now living in Charahi Qambar Refugee Camp which is a muddy space that is a little larger than a couple football fields.
Their shelters are crumbling, open roofs covered with plastic sheets, cracked and brittle tarpaulins that barely protect from the harsh winter that has begun where the temperature drops well below zero. Without any sort of heating, they burn plastic to keep warm inside their makeshift homes, the toxic fumes causing immeasurable health problems and devastating the lungs of the young. 
These people have shown tremendous courage, the children against the odds, without education and little to eat, still manage to smile. Many of these smiling faces, in the photographs you see here, won’t survive the coming months. 
Every Afghan winter comes with the reality of 100's of people freezing to death in refugee camps. The bodies are buried and the memories live on but the living conditions remain.
We cannot change the situation in Afghanistan but we can help to keep these human beings alive.
We desperately need your help to raise money for a winterization program to provide these people with new tarpaulins, blankets, warm clothes and socks, and sleeping bags.
Zwan Family Charity is a 501c3 (EIN# 47-3858255) (www.zwanfamilycharity.org). We aim to connect impoverished Afghans with necessary medical care and education.
93% of all monies raised by Zwan Family Charity goes directly to its causes.
Any excess monies raised will be rolled into general funds and used as best seen fit by Zwan Family Charity.

Your help today gives the people of Qambar a tomorrow.
