Support Afghan evacuees in Albania
This project is fully funded. Thank you!
With the help of our donors, Spirit of America raised $1,600,000 to meet the daily needs of 121 Afghan evacuees in Albania while they awaited resettlement to the US. Specific support included room and board, clothing, hygiene supplies, children’s books, English classes, healthcare services, continued education, and more.
This project is fully funded and the group has made it to America. THANK YOU!
Spirit of America is paying for their room and board, as well as providing hygiene kits, laundry supplies, baby formula, diapers, clothing, phone chargers and adapters, shoes, and more. We are also working with a group of nonprofits to provide necessities such as healthcare, education, and employment opportunities for this group of evacuees, including nearly 40 children.
The 121 stories of bravery and the hopes they have for their futures are humbling. In the group there are Fulbright Scholars, PhDs, interpreters who worked with US troops, former Deputy Ministers, female graduate students, and IMF and World Bank partners, to name a few.
These people, who were loyal partners to the United States and who dedicated the last 20 years of their lives to the betterment of Afghanistan, deserve our support to help them lead a dignified life while they await the long and arduous resettlement process.
Your donation will go directly to help the 121 Afghans in Albania. This fund is part of our broader Afghanistan Emergency Fund, which is supporting Afghans evacuated by the US to a number of temporary locations.
