Event description

Description

Please join us for an evening in support of Afghanaid.

For over thirty years, Afghanaid has worked alongside some of the poorest and most remote rural communities in Afghanistan to rebuild basic services, improve agriculture and other livelihoods, strengthen the rights of women and children, and respond to natural disasters. Despite the many persisting challenges, our projects will continue to make life better for over one million Afghan men, women and children in 2017.

The evening will include a panel discussion followed by a Q&A and a silent auction, as well as an optional drinks reception with our speakers in the Map Room.

Silent auctions items can be viewed HERE. Online bidding will open on Tuesday 26 September.
