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 Volunteers & Partners
If you’re like us, the situation in Afghanistan breaks your heart. It feels overwhelming, and it’s hard to see what you can do to help. Here’s the good news. When you join us today, you can.
For the last 20 years, World Relief has welcomed, befriended, advocated for and helped support thousands of Afghan immigrants in vulnerable situations in communities all across our nation. And we’ve done so with the help of bold and compassionate women and men just like you.
Together, you can continue supporting Afghans in the United States, building communities of love and welcome where everyone can flourish.
You can join the team as a host home, cultural companion, English class assistant, or something else! Check out the full list of active roles on our Volunteer Portal.
Your generosity is transformative and will provide immediate and ongoing support for individuals and families arriving from Afghanistan to the U.S. Your gift today goes directly to helping people in their most vulnerable moments, making lasting impact for generations.
We know you care about the lives of those in vulnerable situations and long to serve them in your community and around the world. Yet, finding the right resources and tools you need to learn how to help can be nearly impossible.

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.
Recently, the President announced that the U.S. would withdraw 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.
