ST•ERASMUS and The Khaled Hosseini Foundation
St Erasmus AW11
ST•ERASMUS is pleased to announce a philanthropic collaboration with The Khaled Hosseini Foundation (TKHF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, founded by Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, providing humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan.
Started in 2009, TKHF has been actively providing aid to women and children in Afghanistan through numerous projects focused on providing shelter to refugee families, economic and education opportunities and healthcare for women and children. To date, through their partnership with the UNHCR, the foundation has provided funding for 369 shelters resulting in homes for over 2,200 people. They continue to believe that hope for a better future for Afghanistan lies with the betterment and advancement of its most underserved population, women and children. Their programs focus on this population and the extraordinary need they face. Through this collaboration, ST•ERASMUS hopes to assist TKHF in raising funds to support the foundation’s humanitarian efforts for the returning refugees, the women and children of Afghanistan. Some of our SPRING SUMMER 2012 statement pieces will be auctioned on the web and at charity fundraising dinners & events. All the proceeds from these auctions will be donated to TKHF.
