|News Release on 8-23-21: Afghan Refugee Aid 2021|
Greetings friends of Afghanistan!
As you are probably aware thousands of Afghan refugees are coming to the US in the near future. They will be exhausted from a very difficult and mentally draining journey. They have left everything they had and, most importantly, everything they hoped for in Afghanistan.
A4T’s operation inside Afghanistan has now shifted to support these in-coming refugees in their resettlement. A4T is in direct contact with top military personnel here in the US and we understand the first wave of refugees are safe and being well cared for. However, it will take some time to process refugees through US military bases and much help will be needed. We are in the queue for State Department authorization and awaiting instructions on where and how we can help with relocation efforts.
Such support includes provision of airport pick-ups, translation services in both local languages (Pashto and Dari), providing temporary shelters, providing counseling services, and household equipment and supplies.
Your help is really needed and we appreciate your support in making this difficult transition for Afghan refugees as painless as possible. As you will be aware, this is a rapidly evolving situation and A4T’s response and support is evolving to respond directly to the needs of displaced Afghans as they resettle. We will continue to update our webpages to provide further detail of the work we are involved in during this difficult time. All donations will be wholly directed to supporting and assisting those refugees via our network of volunteers and partners.
To donate by check, credit card or PayPal please see our Donate page.
