Yazmany Arboleda has already unleashed coloured balloons liquid propecia in India, Japan and Kenya. He hopes that Afghanistan can be the next to benefit from “simple happiness” despite being in the grip of an 11-year Taliban insurgency.

“In India, people thought it was a national day they didn’t know about. In Japan, some people thought we were selling balloons. In Kenya, some canadian health care pharmacy order viagra of them thought we were having a job fair.

“But when people realise that balloons are given away and that they don’t have to pay for it, they smile. The idea of this project is to bring simple happiness.”
