  • Help save the cultural heritage of Afghanistan

    Brent Huffman, a documentary film-maker and professor at Northwestern University, USA, first visited the ancient Buddhist city of Mes Aynak in June of 2011 and immediately fell in love with the site. From that point onwards he has campaigned tirelessly to bring the plight of Mes Aynak into the public conciousness so that it can be saved for future generations of Afghans and the international community.
    Environmental devastation

    In addition to destroying one of Afghanistan’s most important archaeological findings, the copper mine that is due to start operating on the site will almost certainly devastate the environment by polluting the land and water supply in Logar province and kill all life in the area.

    A wee update to this -- with 24 days to go they've hit over the $20,000 mark. Here's to hoping they make it.

    Less than $200 to go, with 16 days left. Looks like it's a happening thang.
