In the U.S. led effort to hunt down the Taliban, many innocent civilians of Helmand Province have lost their lives and homes as collateral damage during the bombing and violence.
With their homes and land destroyed, thousands of people have fled the fighting in Helmand and are currently living in a makeshift camp on the outskirts of Kabul.
The nonprofit organization Children's Culture Connection and it's program, War Kids Relief, is partnering with a local Kabul NGO to set up a Briquette Production and Training Center at the camp. The income-generating project will train the people there to manufacture and sell fuel briquettes.
