***UPDATE*** September 2016

A charity fun day was held in Spain in aid of Zwan Family Charity. We were overwhelmed with the level of support given to us and amazed by the local and international artists who gave their time for free! A raffle was held and there were many prizes donated by local businesses and a few Afghan prizes, too! The generous people of Orihuela Costa donated a whopping 2200USD which will be used to fund routine medical treatment for the Shamsa Village Orphange. A huge thank you to everyone who made the day a success!
