Continuous and Reliable Assistance

After conversing with the elders of a poor section in the city of Herat, AIL identified several needy families to assist during the winter months. Each of the families being assisted consists of six members on average.  This winter in Afghanistan has been especially harsh with very cold temperatures and an abundance of snow.  Instead of having a one day disbursement of goods, AIL is providing these identified families with the staples of rice, vegetable oil and flour each and every month.  These families will not have to be concerned about what food they will eat tomorrow. 

Please keep in mind that Wednesday, March 14, 2012 is Bonus Day through Global Giving.  Donations up to $1,000.00 will be provided with a 30% match.  The bonus allotment is $50,000.00 and the period runs from 12:01 AM EST until the funds are exhausted.  So, if you would like your donation to go a little further with the help of Global Giving, give early on March 14th.  Thank you!
