Afghanistan Refugee Crisis
August 27, 2021
All information, links, and resources can be found at sendrelief.org/Afghanistan.
The Taliban recently seized power of Afghanistan, storming the nation and capturing most major cities within a matter of days.
In the aftermath of the political coup, a mass exodus is taking place as Afghans try to flee the country by the thousands. Religious and ethnic minorities, along with women and girls, are the groups most in danger of Taliban violence as they try to escape.
As Afghan refugees are resettled, this crisis will impact communities all around the world. Through Send Relief and the combined resources of the IMB and NAMB, Southern Baptists are able to serve Afghan refugees wherever they are resettled.
Send Relief is strategically working with trusted ministry partners to minister to Afghan refugee families.
How Southern Baptists Can Respond:
Pray for the people of Afghanistan. Use the Send Relief prayer guide, 10 Ways to Pray for Afghan Refugees, as a tool.
Resettlement assistance is one of the most urgently needed ways churches can serve. Through Send Relief’s strategic relationship with World Relief, churches can help meet the tangible needs of Afghan refugees with gospel intention.
On September 10, Send Relief is hosting a Care for Refugees Workshop at its Ministry Center in Clarkston, Georgia, where you can learn practical ways to mobilize your church to meet the needs of refugees and internationals as they transition to a new home. You can attend this workshop in person or online.
Register for both of these opportunities at sendrelief.org/Afghanistan.
Gifts to the Afghanistan Refugee Crisis Fund will support churches and refugee ministries in the United States and around the world as they care for resettled Afghan refugees.
Send Relief is working with its trusted partners to implement ministry projects. That work will expand as locations and additional needs become known.
