Dream Bags Delivered to Children in Afghanistan Once Again

For the 8th year in a row, Dream Bags have been successfully distributed once again in 2014.
This year, it was distributed in the Surkh Parsa, Shikh Ali and Bagram districts within the province of Parwan, Afghanistan. 4,952 children in grades 1st through 3rd in 35 schools received them.

Dream Bags are handmade by Japanese children, filled with presents such as toys and stationary.

Children living in areas eligible for distribution usually have a difficult time obtaining such items due to financial circumstances.
Here are some of the children in Afghanistan receiving these thoughtful gifts from the children of Japan.
