What’s happening in Afghanistan? And how can we help Afghans seeking refuge from decades of violence? We invite you to join St. Paul & St. Andrew for an hour of discussion led by David Wildman, co-author of Ending the US War in Afghanistan and United Methodist Global Ministries staff that relates to Afghanistan. Bring your questions, prayers and concerns for a discussion as we seek the things that make for peace in the weeks and months ahead.
Meeting ID: 841 6755 9611
Below are a few ways you can help the people of Afghanistan:
- Global Ministries has worked closely with a partner in Afghanistan (since 1966) addressing community health and community development needs. You can support this work through the Advance #3020522. See: Community-Based Health & Development in Afghanistan – Global Ministries (umcmission.org)
- UMCOR (United Methodist Commission on Relief) is responding to the immediate humanitarian needs of people in Afghanistan. Donations to UMCOR’s International Disaster Response can be made at: https://umcmission.org/
- Church World Service, a Methodist partner organization, is working on the resettlement of Afghan families in the USA. To find out how to support this work, go to: https://cwsglobal.org/take-action/afghan-siv-and-refugee-program/
- Finally, there is an urgent need for advocacy to protect all Afghans who are fleeing violence or who fear persecution.
