Our team is halfway through our documentary visits to refugee camps in Greece and Germany, and we are so grateful to the generous donors who made this happen.
Over the last few days, we have recorded the stories of a few hundred people who have been through nightmarish conditions, sometimes for decades on end, and who were exploited and robbed and overcharged at every step of the way. They are grateful for our service to them, and for the voice we are giving them when they feel so powerless. That service is made possible because of donors. Thank you!
We are excited to share more stories once we finish here in Germany this week!
Though we are a small crew of volunteers, it has been easy to find helpers along the way!
USAHello.org and Welcome.US: Two Helpful Online Tools for our Refugee Friends and U.S. Locals who are Welcoming them
Resettling into a new country can be more challenging when you don't know where to turn for help. USAHello.org makes information and resources available to those who have newly arrived in the United States. Welcome.US matches resettlement agencies' in-kind needs with businesses and community leaders who want to help.
As of 31 December 2021, more than 52,000 Afghan evacuees have been resettled in communities across the country. These resettlement efforts are led by the Department of State in close coordination with more than 290 local resettlement affiliates. The remaining approximately 22,500 vulnerable Afghans await resettlement at 5 military bases in the U.S.
