It’s been a while since we reached out! The International Rescue Committee (IRC) in Atlanta is working alongside communities and partners to welcome Afghans who were evacuated last fall and support them to rebuild their lives here in Georgia.

Since September 2021, we have welcomed 799 individuals—more than 230 families—and as our Executive Director, Justin Howell, shares in the brief update video, we simply could not do this work without your support! Thank you to everyone who has answered this call!
