Helping Afghan Immigrants and Refugees

St. Christopher’s regularly uses the ELCA (Lutheran) and Episcopal Church networks to distribute funds directly where they are needed.

EFFORTS BY THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH

UPDATE 9/3/21: The Diocese of Olympia (our diocese) has a video and more info about how to help Afghan refugees in our area. See here.

Episcopal Migration Ministries is currently seeking funds to help Afgans leaving their country to settle into their new home here and abroad. Find out more here.

Above video: Episcopal Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry speaks about the Afghan immigration and refugee crisis.

As Episcopal Migration Ministries continues to welcome and resettle Afghan allies to the U.S. through our affiliate network, the greatest need continues to be assistance with housing. Your financial donation will directly support providing basic services and assistance with housing to newly arrived Afghan allies and assist EMM expanding its work in developing sponsorships for Afghan allies. Make a donation online or donate by mail and send checks to:

DFMS-Protestant Episcopal Church US
P.O. Box 958983
St. Louis, MO 63195-8983
(Include Episcopal Migration Ministries and Afghan allies in the memo line.)
