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 promised that transcend borders and conflicts.
After this, 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.
We didn’t stop there. Operation Recovery further facilitated nine private charter flights, reaching out to those stranded and most in need. Our mission continues to this day. Natural disasters, conflict, and humanitarian crises persist, but so does our resolve. We stand ready to face these challenges to safeguard the well-being of American citizens and our allies worldwide.
Our work is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, a beacon of hope in an often uncertain world. Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can change lives.
Sir, I don’t think there’s anything I can do and say that’ll match what you have done for my family and me. I’m thankful beyond words. I had heard we sometimes get angels assigned to us that help us and save us in difficult times. You’re that angel...

In Afghanistan, women face numerous dangers and challenges daily. Due to the country’s deeply conservative and patriarchal society, women are often seen as inferior and dependent on male relatives for their safety and well-being. As a result, women living alone or without male relatives are often viewed with suspicion and at risk of harassment, violence, and discrimination.
To make matters worse, the Taliban’s recent takeover of the country has only heightened the dangers women living alone in Afghanistan face. The Taliban’s strict interpretation of Islamic law imposes severe restrictions on women’s rights, including their ability to work, attend school, and even leave their homes without a male escort. This has made life even more difficult for women living alone, who are now even more vulnerable to violence, harassment, and discrimination.
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.
