The Alliance for African Assistance is assisting with the resettlement of 1,020 asylum seekers, individuals, and families from Afghanistan who began arriving on September 1st with a goal of resettling all in San Diego by the end of February, 2022.
We are thankful that through a partnership with Rancho Santa Fe Foundation to help our supporters maximize their support of the resettlement of Afghan families, the first $50,000 of donations received will be doubled.
Given the unprecedented situation in Afghanistan, Alliance announced its sponsorship of 1,020 Afghan refugees fleeing Taliban control.
In agreeing to this sponsorship, Alliance is supporting the resettlement of these individuals and families in the San Diego community. This requires a significant amount of time, funding, and caring hearts. In order to meet our goals and provide assistance, we are asking for help from the larger San Diego community and beyond to assist us in this effort. We are asking for monetary donations to assist in the initial resettlement process, including rental assistance, covering the cost of prescription drugs, and providing food for Afghans. Please click the below button to donate, or call (619) 282-4218.
We recognize that many in our San Diego community have supported the people of Afghanistan in a variety of ways, including serving on the front lines. We thank you for your support and are grateful for the support of the broader community during these unprecedented times.
