Provide Care for Afghanistan's Abandoned Children

Children's Garden planning continues

 We’re currently making plans to add a children’s garden to the Light of Pamir Children’s Home. The humanitarian we support, Janagah Jaheed, has found a one acre lot that is available for only a few hundred dollars a month, just blocks away from the home. It’s important to note Baharak is an extremely fertile part of Afghanistan. The area is actually famous for its apples and pears.

Unlike the other children’s gardens we’re planting around the world, the importance of this garden is not related to the nutrition it brings but – instead – the experience our children can have while they’re working in the garden. This garden will belong to them and it will help them to heal from what they’ve seen in the outside world. These are children who have lost their parents to war. Helping a plant to germinate and then sprout is solace for the soul!

With proper support, we are hoping to break ground on our Children’s Garden before the winter’s snows set in.
