Aschiana News

 

One of our longest serving trustees, Dr John Earle MBE, sadly passed away just before Christmas. A service of Thanksgiving for his life, was held at his local Church, All Saints Hertford, where he and his wife Fiona - also MBE for her services to charity and Friends of Aschiana UK - had held so many successful fundraising events. He was a lovely man, a kind and generous spirit, with a great sense of humour. We shall miss him and his help enormously. Condolences to Fiona and the family and thanks for all your support and hard work for Friends of Aschiana UK, on behalf of the street working children of Afghanistan, whose lives you tirelessly work to improve.

Friends of Aschiana UK, together with a hugely generous contribution from the Linda Norgrove Foundation, http://www.lindanorgrovefoundation.org have helped Aschiana to realise a heartfelt ambition, to provide a brand new, all-weather football pitch for their street working boys and girls. The new pitch has floodlights for night games and a new seating area for spectators. Organised sport is one of the most important areas, where these children can reclaim their childhood. The combination of sports and regular meals, provided by Aschiana, has also seen a vast improvement in their academic work. Most important of all is the spirit of fun it brings to street working children, who have had little provision for joy in their short lives. Thank you to all our supporters who have donated funds to help make this wonderful new pitch a reality. 

If you would like to donate to our present and future programmes at Aschiana, please go to our Donate Page. 99% of all funds raised goes to help improve the lives of some of the most deprived children in the world, the street working children of Afghanistan.
