A benefit for Omeid International
. All the money raised at the door is earmarked to build an orphanage for Afghan children displaced by war.
Omeid International is a 501 c3 public charity human rights based organization operating in the East Bay and in Kabul, Afghanistan. Our mission is to restore hope to the lives of Afghanistan's children of war; by removing them from a state of anguish, isolation and persecution, toward a future of hope,opportunity and justice inherent to our most primitive human rights.
Wars and other conflicts, regardless of their political meaning or benefit always leave in their wake a devastating trail of destitution and hopelessness, especially for children. These kids have no politics. They have neither desire for property, prestige or domination over others; rather simply they struggle only to survive to see another day. Every day, these kids face the dangers of hunger and disease along with the constant threats endemic to failed state sin the third world, including extremists, human and opium traffickers and other such predators who prey on these helpless children.
