Helping Our Afghan Allies

Together we can respond.

 Thousands of Afghan families are becoming increasingly vulnerable following the Taliban takeover.

Some of those facing the greatest danger are men and women whose association with the U.S. is now threatening their lives and the lives of their families.

Together we can respond. 

For Church Partners and Volunteers


If you’re like us, the situation in Afghanistan breaks your heart. It feels overwhelming, massive and it's hard to see what you can do to help.

Here’s the good news. We understand, and we can help. 

At World Relief, over the past twenty years we’ve welcomed, befriended, advocated for and helped support thousands of Afghan immigrants in vulnerable situations to communities all across our nation.

And we’ve been partnering with churches both in the U.S. and around the world for over 75 years, helping them join in God's plan to bring lasting change to our world.

Here's how to join us:


Whether serving as a host family, setting up a new apartment, serving as a Good Neighbor volunteer, or coming alongside our vital programs and services, you can join our global network of over 95,000 volunteers positively impacting our world by dedicating your time and resources as a volunteer.


You can seek justice and mercy for the most vulnerable, using your voices to influence those in positions of power who can save lives. We have an active Advocacy Action to Protect Vulnerable Afghans that needs bold and compassionate people like you.


Together, let’s show the world that America is a place of welcome and that we are a people of welcome. We would love to have a conversation about what partnership could look like for your church.

Together, we can expand your congregation’s understanding of what it means to love, serve and learn from the most vulnerable, as well as guide your church into deeper discipleship

"I helped U.S. troops in Afghanistan. I’m safe now, but I worry for friends I left behind."

Program participant Seeta Habib and her family were resettled in Memphis in October 2020 through the special immigrant visa program. She and her husband had served as interpreters and journalists for U.S. forces in their home country, and they were consequently targeted by the Taliban. Read her story here.

September 1, the U.S. withdrew from Afghanistan, increasing the attacks from the Taliban on Afghan nationals who supported the U.S. mission and violence against Afghan women and children. Hear from Jenny Yang, SVP of Advocacy and Policy and Ken Primus, Office Director of World Relief Tri-Cities (who served two tours of duty in Afghanistan) about what can the U.S. do to #SaveOurAllies and how can we respond.
