Brave New Foundation Raises Funds for Food for Afghan Refugees

100% of Funds Raised Directed to the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA)

CULVER CITY, Calif. - Prompted by the hardships faced by Afghan refugee (as highlighted by the Civilian Casualties segment of the documentary Rethink Afghanistan),
Brave New Foundation asked for donations from their online members to
send as aid.  The funds went to the families now living in an Afghan
refugee camp outside of Kabul.

Brave
New Foundation partnered with the Revolutionary Association of the
Women of Afghanistan (RAWA), which requested a total of $15,000 to
ensure that every family in the refugee camp would receive oil, rice,
sugar, and blankets. All funds went directly to RAWA. The funds were
raised due to the generosity of Brave New Foundation members in a short
period of two weeks.

This
camp is home to roughly 4,000 adults, elderly, and children who mostly
live in run-down huts that usually get flooded during rain storms. 
Refugees located in this camp come from all over Afghanistan, with a
significant portion from the Helmand, Kandahar and Uruzgan regions.
