Dear Friends of Afghanistan,

Thank you so much for your generosity in helping needy Afghans during the winter over the last few years.

We wanted to let you know about an urgent need in Injil district of Herat Province in Afghanistan. This winter there has been a lot of rain in the district and many homes have been destroyed or heavily damaged from the flooding which followed the rains. Ultimately, the people will rebuild but now they urgently need food to get them through the winter.

The Afghan Institute of Learning (AIL) has many women's learning centers and a large clinic in the district and has also done a lot of human rights, leadership, health and teacher training in the district. Because of the flooding, AIL has put out an urgent appeal. AIL is working hard to provide the basic food items that are needed for survival.

Anything that you can donate to help those who are homeless for the time being would be greatly appreciated.

We thank you again for your generous support and consideration.
