I'm happy to report that a large portion of the items needed to outfit the entire household for our Afghani family are almost all collected. Thank you to our many friends, family and supporters who have chipped in, sending needed items and/or cash to help us check off the litany of items needed from the apartment set-up list.
Our next step is to finalize our large furniture purchases and procurement, and work with the International Rescue Committee of Atlanta to get a moving date. More details will be shared when we are given the green light!
Until then, we still have to purchase mattresses and other large items, so there are continued opportunities to donate to this deserving family. Venmo your donation to @Darcy-Castro or PayPal friends and family to email@example.com.
For anyone that has donated, I am compiling well wishes and welcomes from our support community. Please email your special message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Friends, the IRC is working hard to resettle Afghani refugees, all while navigating the needs of refugees globally. Working with families in the US is one small slice of the work they do around the world to address ongoing humanitarian crises, now including war-torn Ukraine. Juan and I are proud to support their work, and we thank YOU for being a part of our efforts here in Atlanta to help a struggling family make the best of their new life here, #TogetherForAfghanistan.
