Nowruz is a few Short Months Away!

Dear Friends,

Child Foundation's new annual report is printed and will be mailed to all of our donors in the United States along with their 2016 tax statement. If you do not receive it by the end of the first week of February please do not hesitate to contact our offices. You may also see the web version of the annual report here.

As we are getting closer to Nowruz festivities, when we traditionally collect more donations for children in need, we cannot hide our deep concern about the new political environment. We are closely watching the new US administration's actions on local and international scale to ensure that our humanitarian efforts in Afghanistan and Iran continue. The visa cancellation of citizens from countries we work does not look promising. 

This is why we are at's why we are outreaching to all charities and nonprofits that work in those countries to see how we can work collectively to safeguard bringing hope to children.

An old African proverb says when elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers. I am worried however that in this world of fighting among politicians it is the little children who will suffer. 

We should all work together to prevent it. In this time of uncertainty and unrest around the globe, if you are interested in participating in advocacy, just send us a note and ways of collaboration with us through any contacts and resources that you would like to share.

With that said, we continue to focus on our Nowruz festivities. This year we not only plan our traditional fundraising to purchase new shoes and clothes for  our  children,  but  we have also set a goal of finding sponsors for at least 100 hard working students who currently have no support. 

We are working on translations of all the children's' files to mail them to our donors; you may also access some of the files from  here.

You can also send eidi to the child you support or any other child here.

Once again, thank you for making this Nowruz a joyous holiday for children in need through purchasing the gift of hope for them.

Flooding in Sistan & Baluchestan

A massive flood in Sistan & Bluchestan had made more than 5,500 people homeless. 

A representative of Child Foundation in Zahedan who had visited the flooded area reported many of children we support had to move with their families to safer areas, some staying with relatives and some are in temporary housing. they are all in great need of financial assistance to survive this unpleasant situation and repair their houses.

We encourage you to join us in helping these children through your generous donation to our flood fund here.
From Mazar-e-Sharif to Italy
Back in our April newsletter we mentioned that Child Foundation is helping three young boys in Afghanistan who had lost their legs. 

Hamidollah and Allim, were moving their cattle to a field when they accidentally walked into mine fields. Another young boy, Khal-Mohammad who used to work as a package courier with his wheelbarrow and was hired to carry a package to a bank. He was unaware thate was a small bomb inside the package which exploded near the bank!

With help of Soraya, our wonderful volunteer in Italy, We are sending two of these children to Italy for medical treatment. They will through an extensive period of therapy before they receive their prosthetic legs.

If you like to participate in helping these children, please donate to our medical fund here .
