2023 Year End Afghan Support

Dear FoA Member and All Friends of Afghanistan, שָׁלוֹםسلام, мир,


With Giving Tuesday nearing and your end-of-year charitable priorities in mind, please ensure that your RPCV organization, Friends of Afghanistan (FoA,) is among your considerations as we approach the Holidays and the New Year. However robust or modest, your contribution gives us direct reach into Kabul, Mazar, Jalalabad, Herat, and rural and provincial Afghanistan.

Funded: $16,589.64
Goal: $10,000.00

Support Afghan Refugees

As you read this plea, America is ending our twenty-year mission in Afghanistan. We RPCVs and other Friends of Afghanistan know that the children and grandchildren of our former colleagues and students will become Taliban targets and pay a steep price following our departure. We sincerely ask that you support our SIV-2021 initiative and help us bring eligible SIV awardees to safety in the United States. 

Friends of Afghanistan, EIN: 46-4928009, is a recognized 501 c (3) Charity.  Your donation may qualify as a tax deduction under IRS rules. 

 You may also direct all other donation or fund transfers to FoA's Treasurer at the following address:

Comprehensive Yearend 2022 Campaign

Since the fall of the Afghan Government to the Taliban, FoA officers and members have served as coordinators of refugee advisory and support groups around America. We have also continued our coordination with partner organizations in Afghanistan. Our ambitious 2022 assistance programs in the US and Afghanistan are on pace to equal our outstanding efforts of the past two years assisting individuals, families, and small Afghan communities. This year our efforts will save lives.
