Helping Afghan Refugees


Let's never forget the human face of the fallout of the end of U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan, and what we can do for those needing resettlement. Here is a preliminary list (via NYT) of registered charities, organizations, and funds providing relief for Afghan refugees.  Please help if you can:

  • Commonwealth Catholic Charities, in partnership with community organizations, is providing resettlement services and child care to Special Immigrant Visa holders from Afghanistan in Fort Lee, Va.

  • The City of Fremont, Calif., home to a large population of Afghan immigrants, is collecting donations to support local charities providing essential items to newcomers.

  • New American Pathways, a nonprofit for resettlement based in Atlanta, is seeking volunteers to support Afghan refugees.
