Be there for Afghanistan.

We are a group of Afghan college students from the Ivy League institutions of Yale, Harvard, Columbia, Cornell, Princeton, and Brown, working together to raise donations for the victims of the most recent earthquake in Afghanistan. The aftermath of a devastating 6.3 earthquake that shook Herat, Afghanistan, left more than 3000+ people dead and many more injured, with many still buried in the debris. The tremors devastated over 1,350 homes, and the citizens of Herat are in urgent need of medical aid and household resources, adding another layer of sorrow to a country already marked by the scars of war and economic hardship.

Our fundraising initiative aims to bring together compassionate hearts worldwide, especially in Ivy League schools, to offer critical help in reconstructing broken lives in Afghanistan. All donations go to ASEEL, a non-profit working on the ground to give life-saving assistance to the earthquake victims in Herat. Each contribution can become a lifeline, offering solace and tangible relief to those striving to heal amidst the rubble. So, let’s be there for Afghanistan.

Our Mission

In the wake of the recent earthquake that struck Herat, Afghanistan, causing immense devastation and leaving thousands dead and injured, we are fundraising to stand as a beacon of hope and compassion. We envision a world where Afghanistan is not overlooked among the tensions of Israel and Palestine and communities unite to support the victims of these high magnitude earthquakes in a country where two-thirds of the population live below the poverty line and there is no infrastructure to rescue.
