300,000 children are effected every year when winter arrives in Afghanistan.
Many children will be fighting illnesses like cold, influenza, pneumonia and worst case death.
Temperatures in Afghanistan can reach below freezing and with inadequate insulation, poor heating and poverty many people struggle during the cold season. Coal, oil and timber for fires is a high and expensive necessity for most families.
Imam Hussein Charity will be helping struggling families in Herat, Afghanistan, by providing coal for them to burn and keep warm this winter.
