Providing hope to the most unfortunate
Join Our Campaign!
KRC focuses heavily on the most basic needs of the poor. KRC provides monthly food rations for the most needy families with special efforts to serve the widows, orphans and the disabled.
In Ramadan, KRC receives extra support from our community and we also step up our efforts in Ramadan. We have already distributed over 300 food rations right before Ramadan and an additional 600 food rations is being distributed in the middle of Ramadan. We are unable to provide most of these families regular food rations every month, but these needy families truly appreciate the extra help during this month. Zakat-ul-fitr donations from local masajids in Portland are an additional source of funding that allows us to bring a little extra joy to needy families.
We are saddened by the sudden death of Abdul Jamil Kamawal, founder of Kama Relief Corporation. May Allah, the Almighty, forgive him, have mercy on him, and grant him the highest level in Paradise.

KRC's first focus was to teach to the boys and girls in the district. Starting in 2003 our founder opened the our first school for both boys and girls.
With the highest infant mortality rate, the lowest per capita income, and one of the most uneducated populations in the world, the war ravaged nation of Afghanistan desperately needs your help. Kama Relief Corporation was established in October of 2001 to help the most unfortunate individuals and families in the rural areas of Afghanistan. We need your help to provide food and shelter to families who cannot provide for themselves, to provide education to young boys and girls who have never had any formal schooling and to provide sanitation and basic healthcare to the entire population.
Where there are people in need, we’ll be there lending a hand, a smile, and an encouraging word.
KRC has funded the construction of Wells for clean drinking water, Canals for water distribution and irrigation, new Community Centers & Masjids and has funded and supported the repair or construction and operations of numerous others. These community hubs house educational programs for adults for adults and youth in the community.
