Resettlement of Afghans in our area
The Northern Nevada International Center is deeply concerned with the safety and welfare of the people of Afghanistan, many of whom continue to fear for their lives and are in hiding since the take-over of the Taliban.
We continue to receive an unprecedented number of emails with offers of assistance and love in support of our efforts to resettle Afghans. We have resettled over 70 Afghan individuals as of the end of November and expect a majority of the evacuees to be resettled by the end of December.
As we anticipate these arrivals, we are receiving questions for how people can help. Here are some basic steps if you want to donate items, volunteer your time, offering temporary, permanent housing or provide financial assistance. Please be patient as this unprecedented humanitarian crisis is placing a great strain on our amazing team of case managers and volunteers. While we try to answer all emails and requests for information, there may be delays in our response.
