We continue supporting the Hot Meal Per Day programme
At the beginning of 2016, One of the main priorities of Friends of Aschiana UK, is to help support the Hot Meal a Day programme at Aschiana. The programme has been running successfully for many years, but now is coming under threat because of the increase in numbers of children requiring its service. A harsh winter in Kabul came early, and Friends of Aschiana UK sent an emergency £5,000 to help provide hot, freshly cooked food to the 500 children at Aschiana's main school. However, a further 800 children, whom Aschiana is providing an education for in the IDP camps around Kabul, are in desperate need of food. It costs just .25p a day to provide each child with a hot meal.
We are preparing a new fundraising campaign, to appear on our new Donations page coming shortly, to raise a further £5,000 to help Aschiana feed these children.
