 One of the students from the monastery says, “I began studying at the school in my village in Nepal, but the school did not offer many subjects. At the age of six I came to the Bon Children’s Welfare Center to continue my education. I study English, science, Tibetan language, social studies and math. I hope that after I graduate I can go back to my village to help to educate others. I will forever be grateful to the leader of this school. This school has changed my life.”

 Thank you for your support of our project to educate Nepalese youth. We hope that you will take advantage of the matching opportunity today at noon EST!

In 2013-14 you helped us fund 80 scholarships for boys and girls to attend private schools in Herat and Kabul, Afghanistan for this school year. One of the recipients says, “My name is Farbia. I am 13 and have three younger sisters. My father is a laborer and my mother does washing and cleaning for our neighbors. I was not able to pay to go to school. I am so thankful for this scholarship. This opportunity has changed my life. After I graduate, I am going to help my family and my community.”

One of the young men that your donations supported recently graduated from a university in the US with his Bachelors in Communications! He is planning to get a Masters degree and then return to Afghanistan and work for his people.  We wish him all the best!!

Again, thank you for your support of our project to provide scholarships to Afghan students!

Your Help is Needed to Fund Surgeries!

Herat city benefits from the excellent medical care available at The Professor Yacoobi Private Hospital. This state of the art facility provides much needed treatment, particularly surgeries to patients who have few medical alternatives. So far in 2014, 160 surgeries were performed with staff continuing to operate a sliding scale for fees.

These surgeries would not have happened without support from donors like you. The hospital accepts fees from patients who can pay and uses these to subsidize the poor patients’ care but this does not go far enough. Additional funding through this project is vital to ensure everyone gets the treatment they need and no one is turned away because they cannot afford to pay. People often travel great distances to reach this facility because of its reputation.

Here is a patient story: “My name is Zarqoona. I am a 22 year old woman with 3 children living 30 km from Herat city. My husband is a worker. I had pregnancy problems after my last birth two years ago. I sometimes had internal bleeding since then and my husband was too poor to pay the expenses of my medical treatment.

My cousin attended a Reproductive health Workshop held by AIL; there she found out about the Professor Sakena Yacoobi clinic, and then she called me to come to this hospital for a free checkup. I was so happy and asked my husband take me to the hospital. The doctors were kind and the equipment very modern. After a checkup, I had to stay in the hospital for two days because my problem was serious. The doctor prescribed me some tablets and syrups. I am completely recovered for a few months now.  

The hospital administration updates equipment whenever possible and recently a portable ultrasound machine was donated and will soon be en route from the USA to Afghanistan. This will help with the necessary diagnostic testing which is performed on site including ultrasounds (655 conducted in 2014). The hospital pays attention to educating its staff and is currently seeking to send one of its doctors to the US for hospital site visits as a continuing education opportunity.
