As his life unfolds in the days after his death, one area of philanthropy that Prince was involved in was supporting orphans in Afghanistan.
"Check out the donor list on the website of PARSA, a respected international aid organization that works with orphans, war wounded and the disabled of Afghanistan and you’ll spot the usual suspects: the American and German embassies, the International Organization for Migration and an outfit called War Child Canada.
"But here’s a surprising name to add to the list: Prince.
'Prince was really invested in orphans,' says Seattle native Marnie Gustavson, executive director of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitative Support for Afghanistan (PARSA), who spoke to The Hollywood Reporter in a phone interview from Kabul, where she has lived for the past 12 years. 'The reason I'm letting it be known is to honor him. And I am no longer sworn to secrecy.'"--Scott Johnson, Billboard
