Summary

Through MALA's national network, there are hundreds of Afghan-Americans from the diaspora communities. Many of their families fled Afghanistan, while many still remain in danger. We have identified 5 families in who are stationed at military bases in the United States, and need urgent financial assistance to assimilate, acculturate, connect displaced people in need of temporary housing, and pay for basic needs such as toiletries, diapers, and legal assistance.

Challenge

The U.S. employed thousands of Afghan citizens as interpreters, translators, cultural advisors, drivers, and more. With the Taliban now in control of Afghanistan, these individuals and their families escaped grave danger, while many of their family members still remain at risk, unable to be evacuated. For so many, their time over two generations in helping the U.S. makes them a target of the Taliban and they are now desperate to find safety for themselves, their families and their future.

Solution

Your gift helps provide food, housing assistance, job training, gender-based violence counseling, and other critical needs for arriving Afghan citizens into the United States. So far, we have been in contact with Afghan families arriving in the U.S to Indiana; Washington, D.C.; New Jersey; Houston and Fort Worth, Texas; and Seattle and Tacoma, Wash. When our new Afghan neighbors arrive in the United States, many have little more than the clothes on their backs.

Long-Term Impact

The U.S. is expecting thousands of refugees to arrive across the country. Through MALA, a non-political and non-theological organization, we can assist these families in creating a new blueprint on life here in the United States. Your gift to MALA helps provide essential support for newly arrived families, including emergency medical care, temporary housing, financial support for basic necessities, and more.
