Imagine Asia is collecting coats, sweaters, gloves, hats, pants, etc. for children in Bamiyan Province, Afghanistan. By early November, there is snow in the mountains, and as the weeks go on, the weather will be below freezing much of the time. Many families live in small mud homes with no source of heat, water, etc. Some live in caves. Every year babies and young children freeze to death, so we are collecting warm clothes to send immediately.
If you could spread the word to your friends and family I'd be very grateful. We need clothes for children from Newborn size up to about middle school size.
Clothes should be clean and in excellent condition with no rips, tears, missing buttons, etc. We will collect here in Exton and will send them promptly.
Many of us who have been without power since the (super Sandy) storm, have a very small taste of life without heat, water, electricity. It brings the need in Bamiyan into sharp relief. Please help us meet this urgent need. We would like to surpass the number of boxes we sent last year.
