Afghan Relief Fund
Thank you for your generous donations to our Afghan Relief Fund. Partnering with another group, we raised over $13,790 which was passed on to the family to help with day-to-day survival while they are in hiding: food, hotel shelter, infant diapers, hygiene products, etc.
We are not accepting donations for the Afghan Relief Fund at this time.
There was a family of 22 trapped in hiding in Afghanistan, at very high risk. They were left behind because they couldn’t get to the airport, turned away three times by the Taliban.
They include parents and grandparents, siblings, cousins and their children ages 1 month to 22 years — twenty-two people in all. The adults were government officials and interpreters for our military. Their homes in Kabul have been confiscated. They are on the run and without money while hoping for transport out of the county from an aid organization that has them on its priority list.
As of November 4, half of the family members have gotten out of Afghanistan, but half remain behind. The costs of air transport appear to be covered if they can make it onto a plane.
