Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service | How to Help Our Afghan Allies
For two decades, the U.S. Government worked with hundreds of thousands of Afghan allies to serve the U.S. mission as interpreters, translators, cultural advisors, drivers, NGO employees, human rights activists, and more. Because of their service to the U.S. mission, our allies and their families soon became the targets of anti-American violence.
Through Operation Allies Refuge, the U.S. has evacuated nearly 50,000 of our Afghan allies—and tens of thousands remain in harm’s way. As a resettlement agency, LIRS and our partners stand ready to welcome our Afghan neighbors and their family members. | How to Help Our Afghan Allies
