21.12.2016 - First project annoucement “ Water is hope”
Salamalaikum my dear Friends,
I want to share good news with all of you.
I have won my university’s “Make a Difference“-project contest and hence a reward of 1.500€.
This prize money allows me to finally realize Raschiq Moschtaqs and my first humanitarian project in Afghanistan, which is called “Water is hope“.
During my stay in Kabul this year, I was given the chance to visit the orphanage “Mahboba’s Hope House”.
I immediately fell in love with all the smart little human beings that are being cared for in the orphanage. Their drive to learn and study impressed me deeply.
This summer’s trip to my homeland has had a great impact on my views and thoughts on Afghanistan.
As time went by I started noticing and understanding the challenges the Afghan people have to face on a daily basis.
At the end of my stay I made a promise to myself, to do everything in my power to bring about positive change and help the people in Afghanistan.
One of the most pressing issues at the moment is Afghanistan’s insufficient water system.
The Afghan population cannot rely on consistent water supply in their daily life.
Often they will only be able to access water around five hours a day. A regulated water supply with clean water is simply unimaginable for most people.
However, especially in places like Mahboba’s Hope House, which is home to over 100 children in need, continuous access to clean water is crucial.
It is a tragedy that in Kabul essential services like water and electricity are not being provided on a continuous or even daily basis.
Our project “Water is hope“ will enable over a hundred people in need to access water through a water pipe on a regular basis.
The water pipe is going to be located at the orphanage "Mahboba’s Hope House” in Kabul.
We hope the project will be successfully realised within the next two months.
Alongside this project I am also planning two charity events to raise money for winter supplies (jackets, shoes, socks and scars) that will help the orphans at Mahboba’s Hope House to cope with the extremely harsh Afghan winter.
I am really hoping students at my university will be willing to pay a little amount of money.
After all many small donations can make a big impact !
Wish me luck, so that everything goes as planned!
Also, would you be interested in reading more about the project throughout the next months?
Please feel free to send me a comment.
Khodafez ( Goodbye) and kind regards
Felice Susan and Raschiq Moschtaq
