HIAS Welcome Circle Information Session

March 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The United States evacuated some 76,000 Afghan during the fall of Kabul last August. 32 Afghan families from the evacuation are now being resettled throughout the country. Three families in Orange County and 7 families in Los Angeles are being resettled through HIAS Welcome Circle volunteers. 

Welcome Circles for the second wave of Afghan evacuees are forming now. Approximately 3,500 Afghans evacuated from Kabul have been waiting to be transferred to the States from U.S. military bases abroad. HIAS Welcome Circles will be resettling the next wave of Afghan arrivals in Phase II of this community sponsorship initiative.

Please join us to learn how to become a part of this initiative on Friday March 18th at 10am on Zoom.
