Omaids story:

My story is that I worked for British forces in Camp Bastion Helmand Afghanistan for 6 years as a cleaning and laundry supervisor.  In April 2014 my brother got killed due to I worked for coalition forces. After that I moved from my village in Kunar province now to Kabul with my family. We are safer now but I have big family without a job with 3 kids and wife left from my brother. I also have 4 sisters and Mom so we are suffering for food - we have nothing. 

Jobs are very hard to come these days, I tried a lot for job but unfortunately still nothing. I'm still jobless and we are in bad situation. I need about 500$ to start my own work and buy rickshaw if there is any way that you can help us?  I have tried for micro loan but no help. Can you help me to start my own little business as we are very struggling?

Only God can help us I believe. I am hopeful everything will be fine if God wills it.........
