"Our hearts break for the Afghanistan people, particularly some of the most vulnerable among them – women and children," says Erin Arnheim, Legacy Collective CEO. "We knew we had to act to help in fundraising efforts for organizations that have boots on the ground in Afghanistan. Our community looks to us in these times of need, asking 'how can we help?.' We are grateful that the Legacy community continues to jump in to help others in crisis."
About our Relief Fund Partners:
- Women for Afghan Women (WAW) is the largest women's organization in Afghanistan, with over 850 local Afghan staff working tirelessly to provide support services to women, children, and families. Working with strategic partners and local stakeholders, WAW's ultimate goal in Afghanistan is to transform norms of violence and oppression into that of peace and equality. Women for Afghan Women is committed to working towards a world in which Afghan women and girls enjoy peace, justice, equality, and the freedoms to participate in all spheres of life and live without fear.

- Love Does has been fighting for human rights and providing education to children in conflict zones for over 15 years. They have built a school in Afghanistan and are bringing tremendous hope to the faces of these students! Due to the conflict in Afghanistan, many families had to flee their homes, halting kids' education in the process. Their hope in building this school is to give these families the community and stability they deserve while also creating a place of fun and learning for their students.
