May 2008:  ASA continues to collaborate with the Khorasan Orphange in Kabul, Afghanistan and has recently sponsored two more orphans. We are now sponsoring a total of six orphans and provide food, as well as medical and educational services for each child for one year. Khorasan encourages children to pursue their dreams through educational exploration and ensures that all children are provided well-balanced meals and medical attention, including vaccinations.

Tahmeena Amir is six years old and currently lives in Khair Khana. Her father died of cancer a year ago and she lives with her mother and two brothers. Her uncle supports them as her mother is illiterate and unable to work. Her uncle not only supports her family, but two other nieces, a nephew, his mother and his sister. Tahmeena started school after our sponsorship and is doing very well. She is bright and lively and has a passion for learning.

Deedar Samad is seven years old and currently lives in Khair Khana. His father was killed during the Taliban occupation and his mother re-married and abandoned him and his two siblings. Deedar and his siblings are now in the care of his uncle. He is in the first grade and enjoys school.
