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.

Widows Afghanistan

TAPS International provides food and necessary supplies to widows and orphans in Kabul. With our team on the ground, food and supplies are purchased in bulk at discounted prices and then distributed to families in need.

Our food packages will fulfill the basic needs of one family per month. From food to soap, each package fulfills the basic food and supply needs of one family of 6 per month.
