In recent news, Hamed Wardak, has pledged $100,000 to USA for UNHCR. This is the U.S. Association for the U.N. Refugee Agency. Mr. Wardak’s generous gift will directly benefit the people of Afghanistan, including the hundreds of thousands who are currently displaced.
As Hamed Wardak explains, “I have long admired and respected the work of the UNHCR. Their work is critical in Afghanistan today. I wanted to provide support to the most disadvantaged group in Afghanistan – Afghan women.”
Mr. Wardak’s contribution will help Afghans of all ethnicities who were displaced as a result of the ongoing conflicts. It will also help those who are now returning to Afghanistan after years in Pakistan. His projects will focus on helping women and increasing employment opportunities.
