ABOUT HANDICAPPED

CHILDREN OF AFGANISTAN

Handicapped Children of Afghanistan was founded by Khadija Omar, in order to aid the innocent children injured by land mines and general suffering from decades of war.

Dr. Abdullah Omar, her husband and father of Hassina, was the minister of Public Health in Afghanistan. When the Russians invaded in the late 1970s he was taken political prisoner. The family was fortunate to eventually move to the United States, but as an Afghan westerner Khadija did not forget the years of war brought upon her country.

Through the past several years Khadija Omar has raised money from the Colorado community in order to provide medical supplies and mobility instruments to disadvantaged children. She has handled donations, support, and the complicated logistics.

Khadija Omar passed away in 2007. Her daughter Hassina, with the help of generous donations and the giving spirit of her mother, continues to help the Handicapped Children of Afghanistan.

The future generation must carry the brunt of this damage that these difficult years have brought. The goal of Hassina, Khajida, and their family is that the children of Afghanistan will be able to carry the country into a peaceful future.Spend some time visiting the site and sharing in their work via the photos and stories.
