Supreme Foundation organizes its largest winter supplies campaign for more than 500 orphans and refugees in Kabul

04-10-2013, Kabul, Afghanistan – Supreme Foundation, a registered charitable trust established by the
global supply chain solutions provider Supreme Group, has recently organized its largest ever winter supplies campaign, helping more than 500 orphans and refugees in Kabul to survive the severe Afghan winter.
As part of the two-month operation, Supreme Group’s employees as well as friends, partners and sponsors of the
Foundation around the world collected the items; which were then flown into Afghanistan and distributed to two charities and a refugee camp. The items included warm clothing, blankets, toys, shoes, school supplies and toiletries. Supreme Group also contributed fuel to be used for the heating, electrical and transportation needs of the charities.
The items were delivered to the ‘Tomorrows Hope Foundation’, an orphanage in Kabul; and ‘Afghan Action’, a specialized school and training program that helps disadvantaged youth learn how to weave and sell handmade Afghan carpets. The items were also provided to a refugee camp, located in Kabul’s fifth district, which is home to around 250 people from 45 families living in total deprivation.
“With our extensive network across Afghanistan, it was essential that we take the initiative and help to address the chronic problems associated with Afghan winters; where the freezing conditions result in numerous deaths every year. We have provided the orphans and refugees with individual gift packages, which will help them survive the severe conditions,” said Victoria Frost, Supreme Group’s Director of Communications and Treasurer of Supreme Foundation.
