ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
Thousands of refugee children and families from Afghanistan and Haiti are in critical need of resources to fulfill their basic and day-to-day needs.
The purpose of the Afghanistan & Haiti Rapid Response Fund is to meet specific, emergency needs through direct cash assistance and support to Afghan and Haitian refugees in their home countries as well as those resettling in the United States. Examples include, but are not limited to, burial costs, housing, food, transportation, medical needs, and clothing.
THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS
With President Jovenel Moïse’s assassination in July of 2021, extreme violence in Haiti ensued. This, in addition to a deadly earthquake and increasing cases of COVID-19, have caused a huge influx of Haitian refugees seeking entry and protection at the United States border.
Meanwhile, after a brutal and seemingly endless war, the people of Afghanistan are left to deal with the consequences of the departure of U.S. forces, in addition to the socio-economic devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, thousands upon thousands are fleeing Afghanistan with just the clothes on their back to seek refuge in the United States.
