Help needed: Young Afghan women’s team

The Afghan women’s development football team and their families have arrived safely in the UK having sought here following the re-establishment of the Taliban’s regime in Afghanistan.

Since their arrival in the UK a crowdfunding campaign, led by the Play for Change charity, has begun to support their resettlement.

There are two ways supporters can support the campaign – donating to the crowdfunder page directly or by sending in items to a clothing bank.

If you would like to donate warm clothing and shoes please donate to:
