“The funds we generated through previous PEACE JAMs were used to provide for a family in Afghanistan who lost three family members to a suicide bombing including two young sisters Parwana and Korshid. They now live in a nicer home with running water and electricity, the kids are going to school, and a better quality of life is now a reality,” Cordola says. “With PEACE JAM III, we will continue to help this family and others in need, including continuing our project ‘Girl With A Guitar,’ to teach girls in poor areas the guitar.”
Cordola began his journey through Pakistan and Afghanistan in 2010, collaborating with musicians on a peace-through-music project. “After visiting and meeting many kids who were living in poverty stricken areas
and conflict zones, I decided to raise funds on their behalf,” the musician recalls.
In February 2016, Lanny moved to Kabul, Afghanistan, where he plays and teaches guitar to children in schools, internally displaced persons (IDP) camps, on the street and in the Miraculous Love Kids Center.
“These Miraculous Love Kids’ lives are important, just as all our lives are important. I’ve become their friend, their advocate, their song and dance man.”

Parwana whose name means Butterfly lost her life much too soon-such is the sad situation for so many young Afghan girls-
This Jimi Hendrix Soul Hymn took on a new meaning for me after hearing about Parwana and her sister Korshid’s deaths by suicide bombing-
Then when i went to meet their family in Kabul where they reside in a very poor section of the city-the girls 6 year old sister Behishta and 7 year
