August 2007:  American Support for Afghanistan began collaborating with Khorasan Orphanage to help care for children in Afghanistan. Khorasan is a small charity in Kabul that cares for children whose parents are either dead or who have no means of looking after them. In addition to facing life without their loved ones or basic necessities, these children are also deprived of knowledge and education and the most basic fun other children of their age enjoy on a daily basis. ASA is determined to assist them in the best possible way by raising funds to provide for their basic needs so as to enhance their lives and empower them as individuals. ASA is currently sponsoring four orphans under Khorasan care. This joint effort is providing the children with food, medical, and educational needs for one year. Under Khorasan’s care, the children are encouraged to learn as much as they can and explore new ideas so that they can develop the confidence needed to achieve their dreams. Their education would be fruitless if they did not have proper nutrition and healthcare as well. Khorasan ensures that each child is provided a well-balanced diet and given medical attention, including vaccinations. ASA will continue to collaborate with the orphanage to sponsor more children in need. This project and the children in Afghanistan could greatly use your support. A donation of $50 per month or $600 per year will provide one child with the care and support they need to succeed in life. You will be provided with a photo and updates of your sponsored child on a regular basis, so you can see how your contribution is making a difference.

If you are interested in making a contribution to this program, please contact us through our website or call (805) 455-4066.
