How We Can Help Afghan Migrants?
Did you know that people who worked with the United States and are now escaping Afghanistan are not officially designated refugees? They officially are designated “humanitarian Parolees,” and as such do not receive any of the government funding and support available to refugees. They need us.
Fortunately, Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) is one of nine officially-designated resettlement agencies in the United States. This is how we can help the EMM address the unprecedented humanitarian crisis of Afghan evacuees.
- Financial Support. In partnership with The Episcopal Church’s Office of Development, EMM has created the neighbors Welcome: Afghan Allies Fund. (Donate by clicking on this link: https://episcopalmigrationministries.org/donate-af...
- Prayer. Click here for a prayer list concerning EMM’s refugee resettlement ministry.
- Pro Bono Support. Short- and long-term pro bono volunteers are needed, especially people with volunteer coordination, project management, and community organizing experience. If you are interested, contact [email protected] with your CV and a brief explanation of your relevant experience
- Community Sponsorship. The St. Mary’s-Congregation Sherith Israel Nueva Esperanza Accompaniment Team (NEAT) has contacted EMM about the desire to host an Afghan individual or family. To get more information please email David Crosson at [email protected]
