In Afghanistan, severe winter weather is excruciating for families living in poverty. The locals, particularly the elderly, do not have heat in their homes or adequate blankets to keep them warm. As a result, they are exposed to cold temperatures for long periods of time and inevitably suffer from frostbite and gangrene which result in the loss of their fingers.
NASIMCO, in conjunction with The World Federation, is once again raising funds for the Hadith-e-Kisa Blanket Drive to purchase and distribute 2,000 blankets to struggling sadaat and non-sadaat families living in Mazar Sharif, Afghanistan. The cost of one blanket is a mere $20. With your support, our target is to raise $40,000 for this appeal.
The Hadith-e-Kisa Blanket Drive is an initiative of The World Federation and NASIMCO that aims to provide warm blankets to individuals who are living in and affected by the severe cold temperatures of their geographical regions. These families cannot afford heat for their homes or suitable warm blankets to stay warm in the winter months. Year after year, they suffer the icy clutch of winter which grips the children and the elderly the hardest.
