A Message from Mahboba

My three month trip to Afghanistan this year opened my eyes about long term effects of poverty. It is heartbreaking to watch people dying because they cannot afford to warm themselves. It is shocking to meet families selling off their babies so that they can feed themselves.

Afghanistan is no longer in the spotlight, and helping the poor is more important than ever.

Australians are so lucky! I ask you to appreciate what you have and share it with the less fortunate. Please make a generous tax deductible contribution this year.

With God’s Blessings, Mahboba Rawi, OAM

Hope For The Future

Neek's family used to live in a very old and unstable house in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, a few years ago, at night, one of the house walls fell down and killed his father, while his mother was seriously injured. Afterwards, Neek joined Takhar Hope House, where he now receives education and good care. Your help will allow him to have hope for the future.

I Want To Be Educated

Tina is a very clever girl; she loves going to school and recently she passed her exams successfully. Once she said “I want to be an educated person like my teachers in the future, and do not want to be like my illiterate mother and father. Education will cause people to live freely and without war.“ This End of Financial Year, help Tina fulfill her dreams.
