We have launched in Afghanistan
Apr 27, 2021
Alhamdulilah team Charity Right is now in Afghanistan! We will be targeting communities with the highest illiteracy and food insecurity rates in neglected regions such as Parwan, Kandahar, Laghman, Kunar, Ghazni, Kabul and Jalalabad. Poverty is particularly severe in these provinces due to ongoing conflict and internal displacement. Our aim is to reach out to those most needy, who have no one else to address their needs.
Across our selected regions, the lack of educational opportunities for children and adults alike, is a rising crisis. With our school feeding programme, we aim to provide nutritious, regular meals to 5,000 children across 10 schools. A warm meal can help our Afghan children recover from the impact of stunted growth, allowing them to focus on their studies and play with their friends once more. In turn, they will be able to finish their education, graduate and earn an honest income, with their friends and families watching on proudly.
Food given in charity is incumbent upon every Muslim. Abdullah ibn Salam (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: “I heard the Messenger of Allah pbuh saying: “Oh people, exchange greetings of peace (i.e., say: Assalamu Alaikum to one another), feed people, strengthen the ties of kinship, and be in prayer when others are asleep, you will enter Jannah in peace.” (Saheeh At-Tirmidhi).
Having daily meals will save thousands of children from an endless cycle of poverty, we have the power right now to act and improve their quality of life through education. By launching this campaign, we hope to rebuild young lives in Afghanistan with your help. Let’s create safe spaces for our children to thrive and innovate.
Every child deserves to know a life beyond the one they know, of desperation and famine. Let’s keep them off the streets and into the classrooms with the promise of a meal.
