With the withdrawal of military personnel and foreign citizens now complete, many Afghans are seeking to find refuge in the US and Canada. As Christians, we share in a calling to welcome those who are seeking safe shelter. In this effort, the BWM is partnering with Church World Service to support this urgent need. We encourage congregations to work with the local organizations that might be sponsoring resettlement efforts in their area. This would include providing help with housing and utilities, providing English language and job training, and providing money to purchase clothing and items needed for setting up their new homes. We invite everyone to join in prayer, love, and action to protect those fleeing violence and persecution.
