Some of our valued members of our law office team include the children that we sponsor. We have recently received an update about Maryam. She is one of Afghanistan Child Foundation’s students who was enrolled in a private school last year. Sadly, Maryam was unable to attend school due to lockdowns, recent political changes, caring for her ill mother, and her own kidney problems.
She is set to begin fourth grade next year and hopes to continue her lessons without any more interruptions. Since the new government took over in Afghanistan, there are only a few factories and companies still operating. This means that the unemployment rate has surged. After numerous health problems in her family, she is thankful for the opportunity to pursue an education.
