Update #1

Hello all! As we bring our "Med Students Supporting Afghan Refugees" Campaign to a close, we wanted to give you all a very heartfelt thank you for your support throughout this 3-week initiative.

With your help, we raised ~$11,200 to provide Afghan Refugee Families with long-term resettlement and relief as they transition into their new lives here in the United States. This includes supplies (beds, pillows, blankets, food, clothing, baby cribs/formula, school supplies, etc.) and long-term support (transportation, housing, school enrollment in K-12 public schools, access to social services such as Medicaid and Social Security, etc.).

Thanks to the success of our Campaign, AMBOSS has partnered with us and has agreed to award 50 students in Afghanistan with free AMBOSS subscriptions to aid them in their studies.

Additionally, our medical students collected new/gently-used clothing items and hand-written welcome letters, all of which will be distributed to Afghan Refugee Families across the United States, with hopes that this gives them a warm welcome to their new lives here.

Over the next few weeks, we will work directly with the Lutheran Social Services, Miry’s List, and AMBOSS in order to get pictures/videos/logistics of how our initiative helped make a difference for the people of Afghanistan. We will email all donors and supporters these pictures/videos/logistics, as well as receipts of our donations to ensure we provide you all with the utmost transparency.

Thank you all so much again for doing your part to make the world a better place - you should all be incredibly proud of yourselves.
