While surveying the
Parwan and Kapisa areas for the blanket project, YCDP found that
not only the blankets but clothes were needed
as well. The blanket project was planned to be completed before
the important Muslim holiday of Eid. Because the tradition of
Eid was for children to receive new clothes for the celebration,
we decided to have the blanket project and the clothes projects
running concurrently so that the distribution of the items to
the orphanages by YCDP could happen at the same time and in
time for Eid.
This project was such a joy for all the children,
especially those whose clothes were no better than rags. Many
of the children
first hand the killing of their parents and siblings and had to
bear a burden that no child should. A simple gift of new clothes
blanket of their own brought comfort and hope to the harsh winter
days and to a holiday as important to them as Christmas is to
As with the blanket project, we plan to repeat
this project as often as we have funding to do so.
