If you have been moved by the film there are various ways you can help...

Afghan Aid

www.afghanaid.org.uk
Afghanaid has worked alongside Afghan communities for over two decades. We currently work directly with over 500,000 adults and children focusing on long term sustainable development in rural areas.

In a country where 1 in 5 children die before the age of 5, our work has an immediate effect helping build a future where people have healthier lives.

Our vision is of a peaceful and secure Afghanistan, where Afghans exercise their rights to political freedom and economic opportunity in a country where institutions are held accountable. Afghanaid works alongside poor and marginalised Afghans to increase their chances and capabilities to enjoy sustainable and fair economic and social development.

Aschiana

ASCHIANA (meaning “the nest”) is an Afghan Non-Government Organisation that has provided services, support and programs to street working children and their families for close to ten years.  ASCHIANA operates six centres across Kabul, servicing close to 3000 children as well as initiating and operating an outreach program for nearly 1000 internally displaced children.

Human Rights Watch

Human Rights Watch is one of the world’s leading independent organizations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights. By focusing international attention where human rights are violated, we give voice to the oppressed and hold oppressors accountable for their crimes. Our rigorous, objective investigations and strategic, targeted advocacy build intense pressure for action and raise the cost of human rights abuse. For 30 years, Human Rights Watch has worked tenaciously to lay the legal and moral groundwork for deep-rooted change and has fought to bring greater justice and security to people around the world
