Afghanistan Relief Organization asks you to go fly a kite!
(And, we mean that in the best possible way.)
â€œHope is knowing that people, like kites, are made to be lifted up.â€
Traditional Afghan kites fly to celebrate the spirit of hope at the annual Walk for Hope, September 23, in the El Dorado Regional Park in Long Beach, California.Â The Afghanistan Relief Organization (ARO) is a beneficiary of the Walk for Hope and will offer traditional Afghan kite flying and kite-making demonstrations.Â Afghan kitesâ€”known as â€œGudiparanâ€ or the â€œflying dollâ€â€”will be available to the public through donations for education and relief work in Afghanistan.
Kite flying is a beloved neighborhood and community sport that has returned to Afghanistan in recent years.Â Â ARO will feature over 200 kites brought from Afghanistan by ARO relief volunteer and independent filmmaker, Masoud Farand, and relief volunteer Hassib Khalili.Â Â Â Â Â » Read more
