Afghan Refugees Mission

Andrew Chapel is working with Lutheran Social Services National Capital Area (LSSNCA) to support a refugee family who is being relocated to our area from Afghanistan.

For a complete list of needs, visit the SignUp Genius link below. You can provide either the cash equivalent of the item needed or the actual item in-kind. Please note that some items must be provided in new, never been used condition. Because this is a hospitality outreach, other in-kind used items must be in excellent condition. Monetary donations can be made to Missions through the Andrew Chapel giving page.

Please contact Sherry Hietpas, sherry@andrewchapelumc.org / (703) 748-2576 with questions.

We are grateful for the opportunity to provide hands-on support to a family locally. If you feel called to provide further reaching support for other Afghan refugees or those affected by the recent earthquake in Haiti, the United Methodist Committee On Relief (UMCOR) distributes 100% of donations made through them to humanitarian relief. The VA Conference also recently shared additional resources and prayers (click here) for these crises.
