Eight years have passed since Laura Bush declared that "because of our recent military gains, women are no longer imprisoned in their homes" in Afghanistan. For eight years, that claim has been a lie.

The truth is that American military escalation will not liberate the women of Afghanistan. Instead, the hardships of war take a disproportionate toll on women and their families. There are 1,000 displaced families in a Kabul refugee camp, and they're suffering for lack of food and blankets. A few weeks ago, you generously gave $6,000 to help and $9,000 more is needed to take care of all 1,000 families. Thats a donation of $15 per family to provide the relief necessary for their survival.

Here's what your money will buy:
* 5 kg (11 lb) ghee = $5.00
* 4 kg (8.8 lb) rice = $3.00
* 50 kg (110 lb) flour = $22.00
* A middle quality blanket = $10.00
* A middle quality tent carpet = $40.00
