We would like to invite you to join us at this special event in support of Afghanaid on Tuesday 30 November 2021 at the Royal Geographical Society, London.
Afghanaid has worked alongside some of Afghanistan’s most remote, rural communities for close to 40 years. As with previous times of difficulty, Afghanaid will continue to work alongside local people to help them overcome the challenges they face and prepare for a more peaceful future for the country.
In this turbulent year, one thing is clear: we must not forget Afghanistan. We welcome your support and hope you will be able to join us in November.
