Why Not Warmth?

The Afghan Peace Volunteers launch "Why Not Warmth 2013" a duvet project which provides much needed work for ordinary Afghan women who have formed a seamstresses co-operative in Kabul, while also giving warmth during winter months to some of the poorest people in the world Y not warmth in Afghan duvets

2013 Winter Duvet Appeal

Last year, the Afghan Peace Volunteers, and a women’s sewing cooperative worked very hard to create and distribute 2,000 duvets.

The APVs want to organize The Duvet Project again this year, with a projected budget of US$40,000 ( US$20 per duvet ), similar to the budget for last year’s Duvet Project.

Last year, your concern and generosity enabled people in Afghanistan to help one another.  Funds were swiftly raised to purchase materials and pay a living wage to seamstresses who could then provide food and warmth for their own families.

If you and your communities are again able to contribute funds for the duvet project, your help will be greatly appreciated.

Afghanistan: A Difficult Birth

Voices for Creative Non-Violence are working with Toaster Productions to make a short independent film about Afghan pregnant women who are due to give birth in 2014- the year of foreign withdrawal. By interviewing ordinary pregnant Afghan women, midwives and public health consultants Maya Evans and Janey Moffatt will find out and provide a platform for the Voices and lives of some of the most marginalised women on the earth.

The European Drone War

The UK has been a long-time partner with the US in using armed drones, with British military forces using US Predator drones in Iraq starting in  2004 before acquiring their own Reaper drones for use in Afghanistan in 2007. Since then, the UK has launched more than 400 missiles and bombs from its drones in Afghanistan and this is likely to increase as the UK doubles its armed drone fleet over the next year while also now directly operating drones from UK as well as US soil.
