The Afghan Child Education and Care Organization (AFCECO) runs 11 orphanages for Afghan refugee children in Afghanistan and Pakistan, including the Mehan Orphanage, recently featured on NBC Nightly News.
By becoming a child sponsor or by making a one-time donation, you can help the neediest of Afghan children, providing them with much more than food and shelter. The AFCECO orphanages foster an environment of love, tolerance and respect for others. They ensure that all the children, girls and boys, receive the best education possible.
