Winter Months Are Upon Us

 

In September, the staff of the Afghan Institute of Learning in Herat was asked to help the orphans at the Khaja Abdula Ansari Orphanage.  This request came from the head of social work and affairs.  After determining that their nutritional needs were being met by the orphanage, the staff traveled to the orphanage and distributed clothing to 197 orphans made up of 117 females and 80 males.

January, February and March are the worst months for those in Afghanistan who are poor and hungry.  AIL is currently working with local village elders to identify where the most help is needed during the cold winter months.  Further distributions of food to individual recipients will be happening soon.

Thank you for all of your 2011 donations.  We hope we can depend on you in the coming year.
