Reaching Out to Help Those in Need

In March of this year, 300 poor families in Herat City and nearby villages were provided with oil, peas, beans, tea and sugar.  Each of these families had at least six members, meaning that 1800 people were reached.

One recipient said, “I am a widow.  I have a son who is addicted to narcotics.  He is a daily worker, but when he gets some money from his work, he spends it on narcotics; so he left and went from house so we don’t have any one to support us.  I am thankful for this emergency assistance of AIL that helped us.”
