The humanitarian organization Vulnerable People Project is working to secure shelter, food, heat, and security for a group of 200 Afghan refugees who fled to neighboring Pakistan after the Taliban takeover in August 2021.
“These individuals, if not provided a so-called room at the inn, will be deported back into a dangerous situation in Afghanistan,” said Jason Jones, a Catholic U.S. Army veteran and filmmaker who heads the organization.
“We won’t let that happen. We have simply picked up where other organizations left off and could no longer sustain these refugees. We are appealing to the charity of the American people to help us continue the work of providing shelter, fuel, and food until these brothers and sisters overseas become stabilized.”
The VPP group spearheads assistance for vulnerable persons around the world, from Ukrainian refugees to parishes in Nigeria and Malawi affected by Islamic terrorists. The group became involved in Afghanistan 17 months ago, just after the fall of Kabul.
