Thanks to your support, from August into October AFGHAN AIRLIFT & BEYOND managed to help around 2000 Afghans partners evacuate to safety. We are still working to get one or two more flights out of Afghanistan.
Here at home, many of these families are now resettling across the United States. We are learning firsthand the enormous challenges they face. Support from the U.S. government and resettlement agencies only goes so far.
Please help us provide one-time cash grants to some of the families you helped evacuate. The team at Pledge will identify fiscal sponsors to provide direct cash assistance. Donations are tax deductible, and the funds will go directly to families from our manifests to help with things like next month's rent, food and clothing. Our goal is to grant upto $5000 to 100 families evacuated by the Afghan Airlift & Beyond campaign. This kind of cash infusion can be life-changing in a critical time of transition.
There are other ways to help: you can host a family via AirBnB or apply with others in your community to form a Sponsor Circle. Your business can register to meet real-time needs posted by charities at Welcome Exchange. More information is available at welcome.us
