Supporting the Welcome Churches Emergency Afghan Fund

As we celebrate our harvest thanksgiving this year join us in supporting the Welcome Churches Emergency Afghan Fund, an opportunity to offer local support to new arrivals from Afghanistan.

As the disaster in Afghanistan unfolds, hundreds of Afghans and their families are being evacuated to the UK and are in need of assistance. Local churches are at the forefront of a welcoming and inclusive society. Welcoming new neighbours from across the world, especially when they are in need, is part of the biblical mandate Christians have to welcome the stranger.

Your money will be used to:

  • Connect newly-arrived Afghans, and other refugees, into local communities, ensuring that they receive a good welcome when they arrive.
  • Ensure that Afghan families arriving across the UK have access to services and support to help them integrate and adjust into a new community.
  • Provide support for Afghan families and other refugees who have suffered through tremendous trauma, loss and grief, helping to support mental health and well-being.
  • Provide training to local churches to ensure a good, cross-cultural welcome is given to newly-arrived Afghan families and other refugees.
  • Provide direct, hands-on training to Afghan arrivals to gain online access to help them find the support and services that they need for independence.
