Operation 620

What do we do?

  • We use our established networks in Afghanistan to provide access to safehouses, security, food, transportation, medicines and other critical services.

Who do we serve?

  • We serve at-risk Afghan families throughout Afghanistan.

  • We also serve other organizations as a place to send all pleas for assistance from and for Afghans seeking help.

What are we trying to accomplish?

  • Keeping as many families as possible safe and healthy until opportunities for legal resettlement become available.

  • Guiding, preparing and securing travel and identity documentation for future resettlement pathways.

  • Connect as many families as possible to critical services.

  • Provide access to critical services not provided by other organizations such as mental health services.
