The Global Water Foundation (GWF) and its principal strategic partners, Coastal Defense Inc. (CDI) and the Save-Settle-Support Initiative (S3i), have united together as volunteers from veteran, NGO, and humanitarian crisis response backgrounds to join in a common goal during this tumultuous time in Afghanistan.
Our goal is to supplement the broader evacuation and resettlement efforts of at-risk individuals in Afghanistan with civilian aviation teams and crisis response logistics working collaboratively to ensure the safe passage of our American citizens left behind and key Afghan partners out of harm’s way.
As the situation on the ground has evolved drastically day by day, our costs have also evolved. After the initial storm of getting people out through the US military system ended, the only option now is privately chartered air transportation into the region and we need YOUR HELP to cover the costs of fuel, pilots, and support teams. Please understand that we strive for full transparency and will pursue all diplomatic and legal paths to guarantee the safety and legitimacy of our humanitarian efforts, in full cooperation and coordination with the US government and its agencies.
100% of the proceeds will go to the airlift and immediate humanitarian relief efforts for these evacuees. Our group will continue to coordinate flights as long as the need remains, conditions permit, and gracious donations endure. If we have funds remaining after the evacuation period is complete, they will go to the resettlement agencies designated to support these Afghan evacuees as they await the long months of processing or resettlement in a new country.
We thank you for your support and promise to never stop working to bring safety and support to those who need it most.
