PYM Quaker communities and individuals have asked how to help!
The recent events in Afghanistan have led to a dramatic uptick in the number of refugees who will need resettlement — a number that has reached crisis levels and requires unprecedented response.
Many meetings have contacted PYM for information about how they can collaborate with churches and communities to help. Plymouth Monthly Meeting is already taking an active role in trying to support a translator who was in the exit process but has paperwork delays.
Below find information about an upcoming conference call and a selection of resources and information about how faith groups can respond.
Join Conference Call
We have invited representatives from the Church World Service, the PYM Middle East Collaborative, and other groups to join a conference call to be held Thursday September 9 at 8 PM EST for Quakers in PYM and beyond to hear about how local Quaker communities and households can support incoming Afghan refugees.
