Airspace Fundraiser for Afghan Families
The Airspace family is deeply concerned about the situation unfolding in Afghanistan. Child Foundation has a history of helping families in Afghanistan and remain connected to their team on the ground now based in Kabul. To support Child Foundation’s humanitarian aid to Afghans inside the country and possibly Afghan refugees, Airspace will match donations from employees until a total of $2,500 is reached.
Here is more about the Child Foundation Afghan Crisis Fund:
The children of Afghanistan are facing a crisis unlike Child Foundation has seen in our 15 years supporting families there. Threats of insecurity and violence have forced their way into the once relatively peaceful region of Balkh province and Kabul where approximately 800 Child Foundation children live and learn. These communities need emergency assistance.
Child Foundation has already distributed $15,000 worth of food to 300 families and we are eager to do more as soon and as safely as we can.
Our first priority is to apply these funds to the needs of vulnerable Afghans including the hundreds of families we have been working with for many years. We know that food and safe shelter are vital and, to maximize our effectiveness, we continue to assess needs as matters change day by day. Our second priority with the fund is to support displaced and refugee Afghans in the region. If we are unable to use apply all of our funds toward these priorities, the resources will go toward other urgently vulnerable children and their families.
Our support is
critical in a country devastated by 30 years of violence and yet able to make
such phenomenal gains in education. Giving to Afghan children right now is
a beautiful show of solidarity with and hope for Afghan youth and the country’s
