The British Afghan Women's Society in London is still accepting donations of winter baby clothes, baby hats, mittens, blankets and other children's winter items for a humanitarian air cargo which will take off from Liege Airport in Belgium at the end of October. The items will be sent to the refugee camps in Kabul, Afghanistan, where last winter at least 23 children under the age of five froze to death, as reported by the BBC and the New York Times. Approximately 35,000 Afghans are living in unheated tents, without adequate nutrition or clothing for the bitter cold Afghan winter. Most are fleeing the war raging in the countryside. The donations are being flown to Afghanistan through the generous donated services of air cargo companies.
Donations are being accepted at:
The British Afghan Women?s Society Community House, 311, Fore Street, Edmonton, N9 0PZ, London
For more information please call:
or email: email@example.com
The Society wishes to thank those who have already donated.
