Some Afghan refugees find relief in the Mid-South

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) – Memphis will soon see Afghan refugees who are getting help from the resettlement organization World Relief Memphis.

They are people who worked alongside the U. S. military in Afghanistan.

The images coming out of Afghanistan are heartbreaking. Desperate people are trying to get out of the country taken over by the Taliban. Some of those families and individuals will be heading to Memphis and welcomed by World Relief Memphis.

“Our office receives those families at the airport and helps them find housing, a job, English classes, and helps them in community connections around town,” said P.J. Moore, executive director of World Relief Memphis.
