"Accidental" Afghan refugee already here in the US requesting asylum

Refugee worked for the previous government, family back home is now at great risk.

Posted October 8, 2021

Background & Context

Although our mission is Afghan refugee housing connections, we are in close contact with an "accidental" Afghan refugee (he was at a conference here in the US when Kabul fell) now in Virginia who needs to start the asylum process ASAP. He worked for the previous government and his wife and two children (one and infant) are still in Afghanistan. He is currently safe in Virginia but if the current government discovers he's here, his family will be ransomed. This is an URGENT request for legal assistance and processing for asylum and we will work closely alongside and with any pro bono lawyer with an asylum/immigration background.

Immediate Problem

Asylum process needs to start ASAP.

Work & Deliverables

Full asylum legal processing.

Project Plan

Preparation Phase

  • Intro call with our organization

Collaboration Phase

  • We do not have a legal background and so need all required help for a successful asylum claim.

Wrap Up

  • We will bake you a cake of your favorite flavor!
