Afghan Children

by William Lee Rand

Afghanistan has suffered through twenty years of war, three years of drought, the oppressive rule of the Taliban and now the current bombing by the US and others. This has had a profoundly debilitating effect on the children of Afghanistan. Most of them have witnessed unspeakable atrocities. Many have seen one or more of their parents tortured and killed. Others have had bombs explode near or in their homes. Many are homeless, others have been crippled by bombs or land mines. On the average, one in very two children is malnourished and one in four is likely to die of preventable causes by the age of five. More that 1 million Afghan children have been born over the last 12 months and there is now a current crisis in which 400,000 children could die this winter from cold and malnourishment unless they receive help.

It is with the greatest urgency that I request you send Reiki to help the situation. It is clear to myself and others who have sent Reiki that they are very receptive to it. The loving, nurturing feelings that Reiki provides is very much in need by these children who are in need of healing on all levels. Also, those who are working to provide aid and the entire situation in general will benefit by the miracles Reiki can provide. So, as you prepare for this coming Thanksgiving and the holiday season, please take some time to reach out with your loving Reiki hands and help.

I have researched the aid agencies who are helping the children of Afghanistan and if you would like to make a donation, I believe the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) is one of the best ones to give donations to. They have been helping the Afghan children for years and currently have a well organized program in place. They have a special fund set up just for the children of Afghanistan. You can make a donation online, by phone or through the mail. As you make your donation, send Reiki with it and this will help the money work even more effectively. Will you join me in sending financial aid to help the children of Afghanistan?
