Before Taliban seized power, the needy women who had found a sponsor came to pick up their support once a month. In winter, many women could not come because their villages were completely snowed in. Then Najeela set out and brought them their money home, likewise if someone was too old or sick.
Now this is no longer possible. To make sure the needy women and their families receive their money, we started to distribute the money every three months, instead of every month. We do have an agreement with the Taliban to support the selected families but it is always a good idea to draw as little attention to our activities as possible. And of course it is much safer for our staff to run these errands every third months instead of every four weeks. Although money from our sponsors mostly arrives on a monthly basis, it is no disadvantage or problem for the families to receive the whole amount of three months at once.
With an allowance of €30 per month, a needy woman can support herself and her children.
But every amount you can donate – even if it is less than 30 € – helps the poor women to improve their everyday life.
Therefore: do not hesitate, become the sponsor of an Afghan woman in need.
If you are interested in sponsoring a family or have further questions about sponsorship, please feel free to contact our sponsorship coordinator Britta Wittmacher (firstname.lastname@example.org).
