Our mission is to connect impoverished Afghans with needed medical education and treatment. We work with orphanages and individuals who cannot afford routine and complex medical care as well as offering vaccination programs, dental treatment and disease prevention advice. We treat people of all ages and do not discriminate against faith, color, age or gender, we welcome everyone into our family.
Our vision is to educate and create healthy and happy communities. Simple health education is vital, especially in Afghanistan where decades of conflict has left many communities vulnerable to every day illnesses threatening the lives of many people. By educating and treating the people and their communities, we create a happy and healthy environment for everyone, particularly children, to grow and thrive.
Zwan Family Charity is a registered 501(c)3 tax exempt charity and we are registered in the State of Texas, USA with EIN 47-3858255. We are also registered with the Ministry of Economy in Afghanistan, Registration Number 427 as well as the Ministries of Public Health, Refugee’s & Orphans. At present, we rely solely on private donations from individuals and companies from around the world. We work with our sister company, Westex Medical Services who provide medical services at cost and thanks to their generosity, we are able to use 98% of donations received for our patients. We hope to raise more awareness of our work as we expand in order to continue our vital work in Afghanistan.
