afghans for Afghans


afghans for Afghans is a humanitarian and educational people-to-people project that knits and crochets wool blankets, sweaters, vests, socks, mittens, and hats for the people of Afghanistan. The project started in late 2001 in response to the war that unfolded after 9/11. This follows a long-time American tradition of knitting for others at times of war and crisis. From the start, afghans for Afghans has partnered with the San Francisco office of the American Friends Service Committee. To date, volunteers across the US and Canada have made more than 120,000 beautiful, warm, top-quality blankets and garments as a gesture of friendship and respect for Afghan children, women, and men.
