Funkor Child Art Center Helping Pakistan’s Flood-Affected Children

The Pakistan-based children’s charity “Funkor Child Art Center“, run by Fauzia Minallah, is playing an active part in helping children affected by the recent floods.

Funkor has set up a children’s tent called “Amai’s Nest“. Amai is the character in Fauzia’s children’s peace education book, Sadako’s Prayer who teaches two children about war and peace.

Amai’s Nest is where the children from a relief camp can read books, paint pictures and do their school work with the help of two teachers.

So far, 37 children from the relief camp have joined Amai’s Nest.
