The U.S. Government employed thousands of Afghan citizens to serve as cultural advisors, interpreters, translators, and more to work with our troops on the ground in Afghanistan for 20 years. These friends are now in imminent danger, because of the help they provided us, as the Taliban has swiftly taken over. The U.S. made promises to these allies to protect them.
With the aid of your generous gifts LSF will be helping these Afghan refugees find homes and help provide other critical services here in the Tampa Bay community. And we will continue to support our new friends and neighbors as they find employment, their children enroll in schools, and they become active participants in this community we will share with them.
