Ehsan Ullah, Director of the Afghan-Canadian Community Center, has delivered financial assistance on behalf of Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan to victims of the recent acid attack against students of the Mirwais Nika Girls High School. The financial assistance will be put towards the victims’ medical and transportation expenses.

Ehsan is working with Rona Tarin, Director of the shorter its The are like.

Womens Affairs Department, to determine how best to assist those affected by the attack. Members of the Afghan School Project were also involved with the co-ordination of the financial assistance.

I hope that you will join me in expressing our deepest condolences to those affected by this attack. I would also like to recognize the courage of all those

who continue to attend their studies under such difficult circumstances. We look forward to the day when the women of Kandahar can attend school safely, without fear of violence.

    Dexter Filkins of the New York Times did an article on the acid attack which prompted me to send him 100.00 ; other NYT readers contributed and Dexter raised over 8,000.00 ( US $’s) for the school .

    I am a member of : cw4wafghan.ca
    and wondering if it is at all possible to sponsor a child for 10.00 a month for education purposes; I am on old age pension but still would like to help a young girl go to school.

    Dear Barbara,

    I just wanted to confirm whether you received the e-mail I sent earlier regarding our Adopt-a-Student program. Please let me know if I can answer any further questions.

    Best Regards,

    Ryan
