Our goal is to bring moral and material supports to Afghan refugees disseminated all over the world as well as Afghans who are living in Afghanistan: help for the education, an asylum visa and an accommodation, the protection of human rights in Afghanistan etc.

Currently our priority is to defend the rights of Afghan women who are suffering from iniquitous Taliban law in Afghanistan. Therefore, we need an aid of men and women of good will. You will be asked to donate 20 US$ to our charitable association through a secured credit card processing system (Free Light Software is granted by us to collect the donation via their system and repay us the whole donation excepting for banking fees).

In order to express our gratitude, those who donate us will receive the following set of original post cards of Afghanistan published by us (please allow us 1 week to process it).

Our activities

Without government funds, we have sent since September 1979, several dozens of tons of medicines, clothes, tents, medical devices, mobile chairs to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

We have financed the medical equips in Afghanistan and Pakistan to treat refugees and war injured persons. We have also financed the schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan for Afghan children.

We have helped Afghan refugees in Europe, especially France, Germany, Great Britain, Holland, Austria to obtain a visa for political asylum and find a job and an accommodation.
