The MU International Programs Afghanistan Emergency Fund seeks to evacuate 60 family members of University of Missouri students, alumni, faculty and staff who are stranded in Afghanistan. Mizzou’s Afghan community members have strong ties to the United States through their participation in the U.S. Department of State’s prestigious Fulbright scholarship program, previous affiliations with U.S. agencies and companies, or employment at MU. Due to these affiliations, their immediate and extended family members are in danger of harassment and persecution by the Taliban. Your gift to this fund will support MU students, alumni, faculty, staff and their families fleeing Afghanistan, including the costs of humanitarian parole application fees, consular visa fees, transportation, accommodations and other related expenses as they resettle in the United States. There’s no better time to show your support for Mizzou’s international community.
