Support our Med Students Supporting Afghan Refugees Campaign and help us raise money to aid the Lutheran Social Services and Miry's List as they help Afghan Refugees transition into their new lives in the United States!
The people of Afghanistan have suffered from over 40 years of war. Recent global events, coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic, have led to a humanitarian crisis with Afghan refugees displaced around the world. Currently, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimates that nearly 6 million Afghans have been driven out of their homes due to conflict, violence and poverty.
Currently, the Lutheran Social Services are supporting Afghan Refugees by securing housing for families, transporting families from the airport to their homes, providing a 1-week supply of culturally appropriate food & groceries, enrolling children in K-12 public schools and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, providing families with health screenings, and helping families apply for social services (Medicaid, Social Security, etc.)
In addition to the Lutheran Social Services, Miry's List is a non-profit organization that supports Afghan Refugees by providing critical items for families, including bedding, bed frames, pillows, cribs, clothing, shoes, hygiene products, cleaning & laundry products, baby & childcare supplies, kitchen supplies, bathroom & household supplies, and school supplies.
As humanitarians, it is our duty to support the people of Afghanistan during their greatest time of need. With your contribution, we will aid the Lutheran Social Services and Miry's List in their efforts to support Afghan Refugees as they transition into their new lives in the United States.
Do your part to make the world a better place - help us with our Med Students Supporting Afghan Refugees Initiative!
