On March 11, 2014, under the patronage of His Excellency the Ambassador of Sweden Björn Lyrvall and His Excellency the Ambassador of Afghanistan Eklil Hakimi and Mrs. Sultana Hakimi, the Aschiana Foundation held its Annual Fundraising Event at the House of Sweden.
Aschiana’s friends and long-time supporters such as the Honorable Carl Levin (Chairman, Senate Armed Services Committee), General Richard Myers (USAF Ret.), and many other prominent friends, all came to celebrate Aschiana’s work and to show their support in helping Afghan children!
This success was, without a doubt, a reflection of the dedication of Aschiana’s donors and the depth of caring for Afghanistan’s youth. With the generous contribution of the Mina Group, this event allowed for the funds raised to go directly to Aschiana’s programs in Afghanistan!

Jackson Bell, Lieutenant General John Bradley, USAF (Ret.) and Mrs. Jan Bradley, The Honorable Russ Carnahan, General George W.
