Afghanistan Initiative

Mrs. Lynn of Operation Recovery testifies before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. 

After two decades, America’s war in Afghanistan concluded on August 31, 2021. Yet, the end of the war didn’t mean the end of our commitment. Many American citizens and Afghan allies were left behind, facing profound danger. But in the face of adversity, our veterans united on an unprecedented scale, demonstrating that the spirit of freedom and the promise of safe resettlement are promises that transcend borders and conflicts.

Operation Recovery began creating a 21st-century ‘underground railroad.’ Our volunteers worked tirelessly, using mobile phones as beacons of hope to guide men, women, and children toward safety at Kabul’s airport (HKIA). From there, we led them to secure accommodations, allowing them to breathe, hope, and begin rebuilding.

Support Our Allies

We are currently engaged in various endeavors, such as facilitating the connection between travel-ready families and State Department relocation teams. Additionally, we are actively monitoring the situation of our allies, including young children, who are still stranded in Afghanistan with limited options for reaching the US.

The available resources are diminishing, and their hardships are immense.
