Thank you so much - from Shoshana and everyone at Turquoise Mountain

Dear Friends

We have been truly overwhelmed by the generosity of over 5,600 supporters from across the UK and around the world.

With your support, we have far exceeded our original goal and will be able to provide meaningful support to thousands of the Afghan artisans and families with whom we work. With your support, we have been able to re-open our clinic in Kabul – and we will keep you informed on the other ways that your generous contributions have been put to work helping those who really need it.   

We would love to stay in touch. If you haven’t already, please join Turquoise Mountain’s mailing list here so that we can keep you informed about our work in Kabul and elsewhere - we promise to keep updates infrequent and impactful!

During a time of crisis and uncertainty, your support has meant a huge amount and will make a very real difference. Thank you so much, from all of us at Turquoise Mountain.

Thank you all so much for your support. There is still much that is uncertain in Afghanistan but it is very clear that so many communities desperately need our help. We are currently focused on emergency food and other supply distribution, healthcare services for children and families, and support for the individuals and communities for whom we are currently responsible. As we move forward we will share further details of how we spend the funds you have all so generously contributed, but for now we can only say thank you again – we are doubling our target as it is clear that further support than we had initially expected will be desperately needed. Thank you. (August 16)

Thank you so much to the many supporters who have contributed so far - we’ve been truly astonished by your generosity and are raising our target so we can support the maximum number of people in our community in Afghanistan. (August 14)

With international troop withdrawal and growing violence across the country, Afghanistan is facing a humanitarian crisis.

Turquoise Mountain has been working in Afghanistan for over 15 years, and we work with a community that includes 200 dedicated staff, over 4,000 talented artisans, hundreds of students at our vocational training institute and primary schools, and thousands of families that visit our health clinic. They are our collective family, and we want to do everything we can to help and support them.  

They need support now more than ever.  

This is a rapidly developing emergency – while individuals cannot alter the course of political events across the world, you can make a real difference in the lives of the thousands of Afghans we work with. 

We have an established network of programs and staff and can provide support swiftly and effectively – even during a crisis.  

Donations of any amount will be gratefully received.

Thank you so much for your support at this critical moment.

Haringey's Global Cinema Club commented

This is in part in honour of our very first virtual screening which was a film from Afghanistan called at Five in The Afternoon which many of you saw and supported. We also wanted to do this so that we can bring the community together and support and advocate for social change through community cinema which is something very important to us.
