Afghanistan Update

Learn how you can help displaced Afghans worldwide

24 Million people in Afghanistan are in need of vital humanitarian aid.

3.5 Million people are internally displaced by conflict in Afghanistan.

2.3 Million Afghan refugees and asylum seekers in neighboring countries.

Afghan refugees continue to need our help worldwide. Please join us by supporting JRS’s programs to help Afghans rebuild their lives in countries around the world including in the US. By advocating for US policies or by giving a gift to JRS programs, we can help protect vulnerable Afghans here and globally.


Following the Fall of Kabul in 2021, JRS has continued to accompany those fleeing Afghanistan. Today, JRS works around the world to provide for their immediate needs and longer-term support. We provide needed relief, education and livelihood courses.



Over 88,000 Afghans have arrived in the U.S. after a chaotic and dangerous evacuation effort following the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in August 2021. Allowed into the U.S. under temporary humanitarian parole, they now find themselves under a cloud of legal uncertainty.Yet, many find themselves under a cloud of legal uncertainty that can be remedied with passage of an Afghan Adjustment Act. This legislation would allow these Afghans to apply for lawful permanent resident status, the same legal status they would have received had they been admitted as refugees. 

Please take a moment today to take action on behalf of our Afghan brothers and sisters by calling on your members of Congress to support passage of an Afghan Adjustment Act.
