CURRENT NEWS
  January 2011:   In partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps, American Support for Afghanistan distributed clothing, shoes, school supplies and toys to women and children of Dehmazang and Wazir Mohammed villages in Khash Rud district of Neemrose province, Afghanistan. Due to lack of security in this area, most villages do not receive much help from the Afghan government or the Coalition Forces. The items were distributed to 60 children in Dehmazang. Most children were desperate to receive something, since this village has no access to drinking water and no primary school. The destitute children of Dehmazang looked a lot older than their age, many with wrinkles. The Wasir Mohammed village was smaller than Dehmazang, with approximately 25 children and 15 women. The village was excited to have visitors and greatly appreciated the toys, school supplies and warm clothes and shoes that were distributed to them. The kids put on their hats and gloves right away, and many of the women were ecstatic about the boxes of brand new shoes they received. This distribution drive would not have been possible without our donors support. Please accept our heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to this effort.
