Afghanistan Update from Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service

As the humanitarian crisis develops in Afghanistan, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service continues to do everything we can to support our Afghan allies in the United States and abroad. LIRS has compiled a list of 5 different things you can do to help us support Afghans here in the U.S. and those still in Afghanistan:

1️⃣ Act – Volunteer to help with services like airport pick-ups, apartment set-ups, bringing meals, etc for our new neighbors:

2️⃣ Donate – Give to our Neighbors in Need Fund to help provide food, housing assistance, clothing, and other basic needs for our Afghan friends:

3️⃣ Advocate – Send a message to President Biden saying you support a full evacuation of our allies still Afghanistan:

4️⃣ Pray – Lift up your hearts in prayer for our Afghan neighbors here and those awaiting rescue in Afghanistan (find Christian and interfaith prayers in link below)

5️⃣ Teach – Read and/or share our resources about SIV recipients to learn about the stories of the people behind the headlines (find resources at link below)
