Afghan U.S. Resettlement Fund


About 73,000 Afghans have arrived in the United States since the fall of Kabul to the Taliban; many of whom worked for the U.S. government or military. Many of the Afghan migrants arrived with only the clothes on their back; thousands are still being housed in temporary camps on U.S. military bases, while others are being resettled in communities across the country. Cisco has launched the Afghan U.S. Resettlement Fund to support the organizations below that are assisting Afghan migrants with immediate needs, and with becoming self-sufficient and integrating into their new communities. A note on tax deductibility: This fund includes organizations based in the U.S., and in other countries. Donors in the U.S. who make a credit card donation will receive a receipt for tax deductibility for all contributions to this fund or the organizations included. Donors outside the U.S. will not be able to receive a receipt for tax deductibility.
