Since nonprofit efforts to evacuate Afghans began in August, a remarkable capacity has been built up. A number of organizations, including ours, have developed the technical, operational, and logistical capabilities to successfully evacuate American and Afghan individuals and families to safety. Already, we have evacuated over 1,000 threatened individuals.

We take the responsibility to save Afghan lives seriously, and our success stories are real, and touching. We have been sharing the story of Jalal, an Afghan hero who supported the U.S. war effort as a translator. Read part 1, part 2, and part 3 of his family’s inspiring escape.

The Price Tag For Safety Is High

Only one area of our mission remains weak: funding. Take, for instance, the planes. A plane seating roughly 150 evacuees costs $500,000. A 350-seater costs about $750,000. And that is just for evacuations themselves. Relocations and further travel incur their own costs. And once refugees arrive in their final destinations, they often require close support in helping settle into new lives in new communities.

The Afghan crisis no longer dominates the airwaves, but one would be mistaken to assume the emergency has ended. If anything, the situation is more dire than ever. The Afghan winter is notoriously harsh, and many of those on the run awaiting evacuation lack food and proper clothing.

Meanwhile, the Taliban has not ceased its policy of reprisals, up to and including killings, against those who worked with the American presence. Many of our former colleagues and supporters are hunted every day, and our efforts to evacuate those in the firing line will continue for months, if not years.

Save Afghan Lives This Holiday Season

This season, we need to harness the holiday giving spirit. So, as you gather with cherished friends and family, please spare a thought for those on the run in Afghanistan, heroes who fought to ensure the safety of the American homeland, and of their own. And let us be clear: even small donations make a big difference. For example, $25 might be enough for us to donate warm clothes for one family, to help them through the harsh Afghan winter.

Project Exodus Relief can get the job done; we just need the funds. This season, help us help those in need.

  • What is it about Afghanistan that is so much worse than Ukraine?
    Every politician in the United States is wearing a lapel button with the Ukrainian flag on it, and citizens are shunned for not changing their social media profile images to the Ukrainian flag.
