Alliance Announces Sponsorship of 510  Afghan Refugees

Alliance is grateful for the support from the broader San Diego community to support in this effort.

Given the unprecedented situation in Afghanistan, Alliance announced its sponsorship of 510 Afghan refugees fleeing Taliban control.

In agreeing to this sponsorship, Alliance will support the resettlement of these individuals and families in the San Diego community. This will require a significant amount of time and funding, and we are asking for help from the larger San Diego community to assist us in this effort. We are asking for monetary donations, as well as donations of household items and products to assist in initial resettlement. Please click the below button to donate, or call (619) 282-4218 to let us know you'll be dropping off household items.

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.

The mission of the Alliance for African Assistance is to serve refugees, immigrants, and the most vulnerable among us to become self-sufficient, productive members of the community.
