#AfghanWomenStrong20

Much still needs to be done.

For 20 years, Women for Afghan Women (WAW) has been a lifeline for women and families in Afghanistan and the United States. We have made over 1.6 million lives better through our programs.

Our mission began as both a response to a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and as a way to empower and support Afghan refugees in the United States (US).

Twenty years later, here we are again. But, together, we can assure a safe and dignified transition for thousands of refugees as they face the challenges of a new home, language, and customs for so many arriving with little or no possessions, and separated from their families.

Your donations will support women like Noura (name changed to protect her privacy), a long-term WAW client. Suffering from dementia, and under her daughter’s care while living in New York (NY), Noura participated in WAW’s English language classes at our New York Community Center (NYCC) to allow her to engage and be more connected with the larger community while her daughter was at work.

While visiting family members this August, Noura found herself stranded in Kabul when the Taliban took over the country. Her dementia made her particularly vulnerable during this turbulent time. Making matters worse, Noura had forgotten to bring her US permanent resident card, which she needed to enter the airport for evacuation.

WAW’s caseworkers and our attorney did everything possible for Noura. Working with her daughter to obtain the necessary documents, liaising with US Embassy officials, and filing applications on her behalf resulted in success! Noura and her son-in-law are now reunited with their family in NY, where she continues to attend English classes.

As our board, staff, volunteers, and clients work together on a strategic plan that ensures WAW will be here for the next 20 years and beyond, we are asking you to be a part of that team.

Please donate to help us support Afghan refugee families arriving in the US.

This is the time of year when we all hold our loved ones close.

With your help, WAW can give Afghan refugees a more joyous and peaceful holiday season.

Your fully tax-deductible donations to WAW helps us respond to this devastating humanitarian crisis. Help us keep our people safe.
