TAPS Afghanistan

TAPS International operates programs inside of Afghanistan to support the widows and children of Afghan soldiers who died fighting alongside American troops.

In a society where the future of a woman depends on her husband, these widows are almost always left powerless and penniless after the loss of their husband. In Afghan society, the loss of a husband, usually the only source of income for the family, means a total loss of security and stability.

With the help of staff on the ground in Afghanistan, TAPS International trained widows to make jewelry. From these jewelry sales, widows were provided a monthly income allowing them to care for themselves and their families.

Since the Taliban took Kabul in August, the army widows with TAPS International have been unable to work due to the unsafe conditions in Afghanistan. Knowing they need our support, TAPS International continues to send monthly stipends to the widows of Afghan soldiers so they can survive and provide shelter and food for their families.

Handing out Supplies

TAPS International steadfastly supports those in need in Kabul through two impactful programs. The 'Family Food Boxes' program offers a lifeline to army widows and their families, providing food and hygiene essentials that can support a family of eight for an entire month. A donation of just $130 can fund this essential aid for an Afghan family, bringing immediate relief in these challenging circumstances.

Meanwhile, our 'Orphanage Supplies' program enriches the lives of children orphaned by military conflict. We provide crucial supplies to the orphanages that care for these young lives, ensuring they have a safe and supportive environment. Every contribution, no matter the size, significantly impacts this program, helping us to deliver the resources these children need.

Your support goes beyond mere aid; it fosters hope, resilience, and the promise of a better tomorrow. Stand with us in this mission, and let your generosity be a beacon of hope in their lives.
