Support for the people of Afghanistan

Support for the people of Afghanistan

In the wake of the U.S. withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, the collapse of the Afghan government, and the Taliban’s takeover, many Afghans are fleeing for their lives. Tens of thousands of them are in danger because of their association with the U.S. mission. Only 16,000 Afghans have been given protection in the United States since 2014 through the Special Immigrant Visa program, and an estimated 18,000 Afghan allies and 53,000 family members remain in the processing backlog. As the Taliban continues to consolidate its power, the window for taking action to help the Afghan people is rapidly closing.

We know many SVCF donors and community partners want to help at this crucial time. Listed below are recommended Bay Area and national organizations that are supporting those affected by the Afghanistan crisis:

Resource organizations advocating for more robust support for refugees include: International Refugee Assistance Program, We Are All America, and Partnership for the Advancement of New Americans.

SVCF will continue to work with our partners to identify reputable organizations that are providing relief efforts for Afghan refugees. We will update this page with any new information about supporting these causes.
