Our Plan

In 2021, we made the determination that we would support refugee resettlement organizations in the U.S. to help ensure Afghan refugees can be safely and compassionately resettled in Northern California.

 

 Aid in the United States

In the US we supported the work of refugee resettlement agencies that have already received families who have fled from Afghanistan and are anticipating hundreds more to arrive well into 2022. 

Impact

In 2021 we were able to provide $40,000 to support refugee resettlement organizations working to resettle Afghan refugees in the Bay Area.
